One time Chief of Defence Staff, General Martins Luther Agwai, has agreed to chair a committee charged to recommend ways to stamp out attacks on communities in the Southern part of Kaduna State.

This was disclosed in a statement by the Kaduna State Government.

The statement which was signed by Mr. Samuel Aruwan, Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to Governor Nasir el-Rufai, said the committee is part of the government’s multi-dimensional approach to finding lasting solutions to the killings in the state which have continued since 2011 when the state witnessed post-election violence.

Part of the committee’s reference, according to the statement includes:

To identify socio-political and economic factors that promote existing conflicts in Southern Kaduna and advice on measures to be taken by government to address it.
