Ex-Militants Allege Nonpayment of Election Largesse
Ex-militants who claimed to be in the third phase of the Western Delta Wing of the Federal Government Amnesty Programme on Friday alleged that the amnesty office in Ondo State did not pay them the money they were promised for their involvement in the last governorship election in the state.
They alleged that the Special Adviser to the President on Niger-Delta who is also the Chairman of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Mr. Kingsley Kuku, had yet to pay them the N100m which he pledged for the poll.
The Public Relations Officer of the group, Mr. Appelle Oweikimi, in a statement made available to our correspondent in Akure, said his members carried out the specific instructions of the presidential aide on the election diligently.
