The Judicial Commission of Inquiry into the Zaria clash between the Islamic Movement in Nigeria ( IMN ) and the Nigerian Army in December 2015 said it has so far received over 100 memoranda from various groups, associations, religious organisations and members of the public.

It would be recalled that the 13- man judicial commission was set up by the Kaduna State Government under the Chairmanship of Justice Muhammadu Lawal Garba.

A statement issued by the Secretary to the Commission, Dr. Bala Babies, which was made available to newsmen in Kaduna, said the Commission would start public hearing on the matter, beginning from tomorrow.

It added that it has six weeks, from the day of its first public sitting, to submit its report to the State government. The statement also said oral submission on the matter at the venue of the public hearing is allowed.

The Chairman of the Commission appealed to all stakeholders involved in the matter, to cooperate with members of the Commission during its sittings for a successful execution of the assignment.

The Commission, which has 13 terms of reference, according to the statement, would inquire into the immediate causes of the clashes, determine the historical circumstances surrounding the incident.

It will also find out the contributory factors and remote causes of the clashes, ascertain number of persons killed, wounded or missing during the clashes, as well as make appropriate recommendations, among others.
