The Anambra Truth, Justice and Peace Commission (ATJPC) said it was set to resume sitting on Thursday for the continuation of public hearings on insecurity, violence and violence-related deaths by communities and other stakeholders.
The commission’s chair, Chidi Odinkalu, said this in Awka on Wednesday.
He said the second phase of the sitting, from Thursday to November 3, would also allow concerned residents to submit additional petitions.
Mr Odinkalu said the commission would engage with community traditional rulers, town union leaderships and market associations.
Mr Odinkalu said the commission would also have sessions with commanders of security agencies, Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association leaders, as well as special inquiries into cult-related killings in some communities.
Governor Charles Soludo constituted the ATJPC in June 2022 to inquire into the violent agitations and restiveness in the state and neighbouring states.
During its first phase of sitting between June and July, the commission considered 24 petitions within 10 days of its public hearing and met with 48 witnesses who testified on oath from 14 communities.
According to Mr Odinkalu, about 170 items were received as exhibits.
