The House of Representatives Committee on National Security and Intelligence on Wednesday promised to be fair to all parties involved in the Military/Shiite clash which occurred in Zaria, Kaduna State last month.

The Chairman of the Committee, Rep. Aminu Jaji, made the disclosure in an interview with journalists shortly after he led the Committee members to various scenes of the clash in Zaria.

He said: “We are here to ascertain what actually happened on December 12, 2015 between the military and members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria also known as Shiites.

“We have visited the scenes; we have spoken to the public and we are satisfied with what the people told us; we will make sure we do everything within the ambit of the law to avoid a recurrence.”

Jaji appealed to the public to be law abiding and endeavour to sustain the prevailing peace in the country.

The committee had earlier paid homage to the Emir of Zazzau, Dr Shehu Idris, at his palace.

The Emir appreciated the Committee for the visit, saying it demonstrated the members' efforts and concern toward lasting peace in the country.

During the visit to the various demolished scenes, the Committee members sought for public opinion as they moved. (NAN)
