According to him: “The Commission took evidence from a cross-section of persons and institutions in Imo State, including 19 traditional rulers, Presidents General of town unions in the state, the police, the Directorate of State Services, DSS, and the Correctional Services.

“The report is made up of four volumes. The Commission received over 350 petitions and heard the persons involved. The army did not appear before the Commission despite all the notices served on them.”
In his reaction, Governor Uzodinma lauded the members of the Commission for taking up the assignment with loyalty.
