The Judicial Commission of Enquiry setup by Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir Ahmad Elrufai to investigate clashes between the convoy of Nigeria Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai and Shiites member in Zaria said it would locate the whereabouts of their leader within 24 hours.

Sheik Ibrahim El-Zakzaky has been missing since the December 2015 attack in which the islamic movement in Nigeria claimed over 800 of their members were killed while others are still missing. 

But counsel to the commission, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) Yusuf Ali said he has been asked to find out the whereabouts of the leader of the Shiites and report back to the commission.

The commission's chairman also assured all parties involved that they will conduct a true, fair and impartial investigation on the matter.

The judicial panel chairman also informed the Army who were present at the inaugural sitting to ensure they attend every sitting.

The Shiite group had before now faulted the 13-man composition of the panel on the ground that it was one sided. 

The Judicial Panel will resume sitting February 23, 2016. Chairman of the commission, Justice Muhammadu Lawal Garba, while adjourning the sitting said  “This sitting has to be adjourned till Wednesday because of the absence of one party involved in the inquiry."
