Bianca Ojukwu

Governor Charles Soludo has set up a 15-member truth, justice and peace committee to return a lasting peace in Anambra.

The list, which is headed by a former chairman of the National Human Rights Commission, Professor Chidi Odinkalu, has Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu, the wife of the late Chukwuemeka Ojukwu, as secretary.

The state secretary, Solo Chukwulobelu said the committee would seek a restorative justice approach for truth-telling or real facts, for the healing of the victims of the violence, accounting for responsibility and accountability of the actors and conditional mercy for the repentant perpetrators.

He said the committee would also seek a restitution for certain losses and rehabilitation of the perpetrators, for the overall aim of restoration of peace and justice, as well as the promotion of development in the state and the region/Nigeria.

According to him, given the cross-border nature of the conflict, the focus would go beyond Anambra, and possibly covers the entire South-East.
