Following reports of alleged extra-judicial activities by some suspected security agents around the Ndiegoro area of Aba, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has further directed the immediate setting up of a panel of inquiry to look into the remote and immediate causes of the reported incidents as well as determine those involved with a view to bringing them to justice. The panel is also to establish and evaluate properties lost as a result of the alleged extra-judicial action.
Members of the panel are as follows:
1. Chief (Dr) Ukpai Agwu Ukpai (Chairman)
2. Mr Sopuruchi Ernest Beke (SOP) (Member)
3. HRH Eze Sunday Emejiaka (Member)
4. Dr NCNC Okoli (Member)
5. Rev. (Dr) Ogboso Ejindu (Secretary)
The panel has two weeks to turn in its report to the Governor and this is without prejudice to the ongoing police investigations on the matter which will primarily determine criminal culpability
Law-abiding members of the public are urged to go about their normal businesses without fear of further molestation as the government is fully on top of the situation.
