According to a statement by the Secretary, Bisi Babalola, the memoranda must be signed and contain the name, address and telephone numbers of their writers.

The statement said: “All memoranda shall be clearly typed and have introduction of the subject matter, statement of facts on the subject matter, issues from statement of facts for determination, arguments in support of the issue and relief being sought.”

Babalola said the panel has an objective to investigate the immediate causes of the violence to prevent future occurrences.
