April 4, (THEWILL) – Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano State, has inaugurated two judicial commissions of inquiry into cases of misappropriation of public properties, political violence and missing persons between 2015 and 2023.

Inaugurating members of the commissions at the Government House on Thursday, Yusuf vowed to bring anyone found wanting to book.

A statement by his Spokesperson, Sanusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, said the Governor explained that investigating the misappropriation of public assets and cases of political violence recorded in the state was part of his inaugural pledge to unravel and prosecute the culprits.

“Political violence is a major setback to democracy worldwide. It leads to loss of lives and property as well as mistrust on the part of the people and those in power.

“The disturbing cases of political killings, especially in 2023 must not be swept under the carpet, this is to ensure that we prevent future occurrences.

“The first commission under Justice Zuwaira Yusuf will look into cases of Political violence and missing persons from 2015-2023.

“We expect them to unravel the criminal network involved and unmask the sponsors to face justice. Find its root causes and find out where violence is associated with 2015, 2019 and 2023,” he said.

Inaugurating the second Commission of Inquiry under Justice Faruk Lawan, the Governor gave the commission the mandate of inquiring into cases of misappropriation of public properties and assets.

He charged Justice Lawan and his entire members not to relent in identifying cases of misappropriation of public properties and assets, especially by the last administration within and outside the state.

He, however, emphasised that the move is neither political nor targeted at any individual but a move with the mandate of the people of Kano State.

Yusuf charged the commissions not to compromise their stands but to remain faithful to their oath and the people of Kano and ensure justice for the state.

He said the selection of the members of the two commissions and its leaders was careful and thorough and expressed confidence that they would deliver on their mandate.

“We went through your records and we couldn’t find any of you wanting. We believe in you and we expect your full reports in 3 months time”, the Governor added.
