Lemu Panel Report - Crave for Change Caused Post-Election Violence

Daily Trust
11 October 2011

People's strong desire for change, culture of impunity, bad governments and inciting political statements were among the principal causes of post-election violence in April in which hundreds of people were killed, a presidential committee has said.

The Sheikh Ahmed Lemu-led Presidential Committee on the 2011 Election Violence and Civil Disturbances presented its report yesterday to President Goodluck Jonathan, with a strong warning that the current state of affairs in the country could provoke social revolution unless measures were taken to improve people's life conditions.

Lemu headed a 22-member panel which conducted investigations in the states affected by election violence, including Kaduna, Adamawa and Akwa Ibom.
