Gov. Nasiru El-rufai of Kaduna State on Friday said anyone indicted by the Judicial Commission of Inquiry set up by the state government in December Shiites-Army clash in Zaria would be appropriately sanctioned. El-Rufai said this while receiving the report of the Commission in Kaduna.
The commission, inaugurated in January, was mandated to investigate the clash between the Shiites Islamic Movement and the Nigerian Army in Zaria.
The governor said the report would be diligently studied for proper implementation.
He said the state government would be guided by the commission’s recommendations in assigning administrative and criminal responsibility to those who allegedly participated in the violence.
“Kaduna State has witnessed at least 10 rounds of ethnics and religious violence in the last three decades,“he said.
El-Rufai said a white paper conveying the decision of government on the recommendations of the commission would be issued promptly.
“And the necessary follow up actions will be taken to avoid similar crises that took place in the last three decades in parts of state.”
