The Judicial Commission of Inquiry on political Violence and Missing Persons, set up by Kano State Government to investigate the causes of political violence and missing persons under former governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje administration (2015–2023), has fixed Monday, May 6, 2024, for its inaugural sitting.

A statement issued by the Commission’s Secretary, Alh Mahmoud Bello Bari, and made available to newsmen explained that the session will take place at Kano High Court, No. 13, Miller road, by 10 a.m. prompt.

Recall that Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf inaugurated the Commission of Inquiry in April 2024 to investigate instances of political violence and missing persons from 2015 to 2023.

Justice Zuwaira Yusuf of the Kano High Court, along with others, were appointed as chairpersons and members of the commission, respectively.

At the inaugural speech, Governor Yusuf reaffirmed his administration’s resolve to hold anyone accountable for the alleged offence.

He also directed the Commission members to remain steadfast in serving the people of the state by ensuring that justice prevails.

The governor, however, made it clear that the move was not meant to witch hunt anybody but a response to the mandate given to him by the good people of Kano State.
