He said his Special Advisers on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs as well as that of Special Duties, elder Jerome Torshimbe, and Hon. Joseph Odaudu would also be part of the committee.
The Council Chairmen of Katsina-Ala, Logo, and Ukum Local Government would also be co-opted into the committee whose responsibility also includes identification of skills of the repentant youths for necessary intervention.
Also, security has been beefed up in Sankera to prevent the breakdown of law and order as a result of the death of Gana,” he said.
