The House of Representatives Committee on National Security and Intelligence, 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 said this in an interview with journalists shortly after he led the Committee members to various scenes of the clash in Zaria.

“We are here to ascertain what actually happened on Dec. 12, 2015 between the military and members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria also known as Shiite,” he said.

“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.”

The lawmaker appealed to the public to be law-abiding and sustain the prevailing peace in the country.
