The governor  further urged the commission to recommend appropriate monetary sum as compensation(s) for damages or injuries that may have been suffered by any individual or group of individuals during the crisis.

He said: “You have four weeks to carry out this assignment.

“The report that small arms and light weapons were deployed freely during the crisis was disturbing and frightening.

“It has implication for security of lives and property and the potential for more conflicts beyond the immediate theatre of war, if not nipped in the bud.

“I want you to look into this. The sources and the current location of these arms and their custodians should be investigated, determined and all should be recovered.’’
