Rivers’ 2015 Election Violence Probe (Day 6) – Live Updates

The River State Commission of Inquiry probing politically-motivated killings in the state sitting in Port Harcourt enters its final day today.

The Commission, instituted by Rotimi Amaechi, the Rivers State governor, is also investigating damage to properties and grievous bodily harms to persons ahead and during the presidential and gubernatorial elections in the state.

Various groups in the state are expected to testify before the panel today.

On Friday, the Commission took evidence from 15 witnesses, including four who were forced to testify ‘in-camera’ for their safety.

As was the case in previous proceedings, today’s witnesses are expected to testify on claims of arson, assault, and killings before the Commission.

PREMIUM TIMES will be bringing you live updates from the venue of the proceedings in Port Harcourt.
