The Tsaragi community in Kwara has rejected the commission of inquiry set up by the state government to look into the bloody clash between it and the Share community.

The spokesman of the community, Dr Abdullahi Idris, made this known on Friday in Ilorin at a news conference.

He said the community has no confidence in the judicial commission of inquiry set up by the state government to find lasting solution to incessant clashes between the two communities.

“We wish to reiterate that the Nupes of Tsaragi community have no confidence and trust in the institution of Judicial Commission of Inquiry set up by Gov. Abdulfatah Ahmed

“We have therefore instituted an action in court to challenge the governor’s action.

“The Nupes in Tsaragi community and in general are law abiding and committed to peaceful co-existence with their Share Igbomina speaking neighbours.”

According to Idris, there have been four Commissions/Panels on Share/Tsaragi boundary dispute since Justice Mamman Nasir report of 1976; all of which were rejected by the Share community.

He alleged that having failed to achieve their mission through lawful means, Share community resorted to the use of force, sometimes invading Nupe villages with armed youths.

Idris said the invaders have all along been ordering Nupe villagers to leave their abode or admit being part of Share District in Ifelodun LGA.

He submitted that the alleged acts of lawlessness on the part of Share youths were what led to the outbreak of the communal clash of December 19/20, 2015.

Idris accused Gov Ahmed, who is an indigene of Share of being behind the latest crisis.

In a swift reaction to the Tsaragi community’s press briefing, Gov Ahmed absolved himself of any partisanship or partiality in the crisis.

A release by his Chief Press Secretary, Abdulwahab Oba, the governor maintained that his intervention and appeal to the stakeholders was to ensure that both sides learnt to co-habit peacefully.

“For the avoidance of doubt, Gov. Ahmed swore to an oath of Office as the Governor of the State to be impartial to all, irrespective of ethnic, religious beliefs and other persuasions.’’

He added that the panel was set up to find lasting solution to the crisis in order to sustain Kwara as State of Harmony. (NAN)
