Odinkalu also revealed that a suspected mass grave site has been sealed off for forensic investigation.

The commission met with 31 petitioners, including 11 organizations, 19 communities, and one individual during the marathon sittings, which lasted from October 26 to November 3.

A total of 39 witnesses testified on oath, and 243 exhibits were collected during the period.

Odinkalu said that 322 people were verified as killed or dead as a result of violence, as testified by witnesses, while many more are still missing or their fate is not yet known.

Eighteen people were verified as missing or disappeared.

The commission, which also includes Amb. Bianca Ojukwu as Secretary, held its first phase of public hearings between June and July.

The ATJPC was constituted by Gov. Charles Soludo in June 2022 to inquire into the violent agitations and restiveness in the state and in neighboring states.

During its first phase of sitting between June and July, the commission considered 24 petitions within 10 days of its public hearing and met with 48 witnesses who testified on oath from 14 communities in the state.
