The Governor said;
“A time comes when you realise that you cannot shoot an ideology with a gun. When you see it exclusively as a law enforcement matter, then you miss the point.
“We got to engage them; we got to engage everyone to really understand the root of this.”
Soludo also stated that the commission will investigate the core causes of the agitations and compile a list of individuals who have died as a result of the tensions in the area in recent years.
Furthermore, the governor stated that threats are “existential” in nature and should not be ignored. He also urged everyone to assist the administration in finding solutions to the nation’s problems.
“We don’t want to treat all these people as statistics.
“To the criminals, we are offering an olive branch to repent.
“So, to them, we are also saying ‘We are not condemning you, sin no more. Come out today, surrender those arms, we want to engage you back in society’
“This is something that we need to engage very seriously and in an open manner to engage everyone, believing that everyone has something to contribute”
