Edo State Government has halted action on the setting up of a panel of enquiry into the killing of Mr. Ibrahim Momodu.

The Government’s decision is premised on the following:

Whereas Governor Adams Oshiomhole had promised to set up a judicial panel of enquiry into the killing of Ibrahim Momodu, events have overtaken this pronouncement as the case file on the late Momodu has since been submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions by the Police for advice and further action.

It will therefore amount to a duplication of efforts by Government to set up another panel of enquiry since the Director of Public Prosecutions is a government functionary in the state Ministry of Justice.

Government is therefore of the view that it is sufficient at this point to wait for the outcome of the investigation and advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions before any other step is taken by Government.
