The House, it would be recalled, had earlier passed the Taraba State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission (Establishment) Law 2021, sometime in 2021.

Speaking with newsmen shortly after the screening, a member of the Commission, DIG Aminchi Samaila Baraya, said the Commission would “establish a structure” that would enable them to execute the Law establishing the Commission.

Other members of the commission, who also spoke with journalists, said they have collectively resolved not to leave any stone unturned work round the clock in order not to betray the trust reposed on them.
