The Commission is led by Muhammad Umaru, while Hajiya Adama Umar will serve as the Secretary before submitting its report on September 30, 2021, to the Governor.

While inaugurating the commission Monday at the Government House, Maiduguri, he disclosed: “The case of a simulation training carried out at the Imperial Quest House on June 26, 2021, is a typical example.

He said even though the Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) brought succour to the victims of insurgency; the attitudes and actions of some of the NGOs became a great source of concern to the government and people of the state.

He said the Commission will unravel the circumstances that led to the simulation training and ensure that the culprits if found guilty are brought to book.

He noted that this is to serve as deterrents to other NGOs operating in the state.

Speaking on the terms of reference, he said: “You’re to ascertain the nature and magnitude of a nuisance to public peace to the hotel at the old Government Reservation Area (GRA).”

He added that members of the Commission will also determine persons or groups of people responsible for causing public disturbances in the area.

Other terms of reference comprise whether or not NGOs are permitted to operate under which law and to determine the travel documents of the heads of teams and 21 foreign personnel of INGOs.
