He explained that the Truth and Reconciliatory Committee comprises all major interest groups and notable elder statesmen in Ibadan as well as representatives from the military community, stressing that the move had achieved appreciable progress.

Speaking on the level of success achieved so far, the CCII President disclosed that the stakeholders reached an agreement that some court cases should be withdrawn, while some intended actions to be taken by government be put on hold to solve the face-off.
