The Anambra Truth, Justice and Peace Committee investigating the crisis of insecurity in the south-east, says it will on March 6 submit the report of its findings to Chukwuma Soludo, governor of the state.

Chidi Odinkalu, former chairman of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), stated this on Monday in Awka, the state capital.

Odinkalu expressed optimism that the report would mark a “watershed” in the quest for peace, reconciliation, and stability in the south-east region.

In June 2022, Soludo set up the commission and saddled it with the task of unravelling the circumstances behind the spate of insecurity in the state.

The commission, which has Bianca Ojukwu as secretary, was also set up to recommend possible solutions.

Odinkalu said the job was tasking but a great privilege. He said the commission enjoyed the support of the government and communities around the south-east.

“We also want to thank the good people of Anambra, traditional rulers, town union leaderships, security agencies, the media, for their invaluable cooperation and support,” he said.

Odinkalu added that he hoped the report would serve as a reference point for other state governors, who may want to address the security challenges in their domains with sincerity and commitment.
