The Chairman, Justice Florence Duruoha-Igwe (rtd.), who made this observation at the weekend in Owerri during the 37th sitting of the commission before adjourning till March 3, 2021, described the attitude as ‘counterproductive‘.
She wondered why the respondents were shying away from their defense, reminding them that ‘silence is consent.’
