UGHELLI-NIGER Delta Ex-militants Phase II leaders Tuesday, issued a one month ultimatum to the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta Affairs, Mr. Kingsley Kuku to release unpaid allowances to members of the various camps in the phase or risk another round of crisis in the region.
They also raised alarm over the non implementation of the leaders’ entrepreneurship training, lamenting that the amnesty office have been sending some of the boys for training without notifying the leaders of their camps.
Speaking with newsmen in Ughelli, Delta State on behalf of the leaders, ‘General’ Owonama Edward and ‘General’ Charles Akatakpo decried the omission of some of the members in the monthly payments.
“We have been experiencing a situation where some of the boys will receive their salaries in a particular month and have their names omitted the next month. We are insisting that the pending allowances should be paid,” they said.
While reiterating that the leaders of the phase II were not being recognized and carried along by the amnesty office, they said: “we the leaders are being treated like nuisance by the amnesty office; why? They should work towards the implementation of the leaders’ entrepreneurship training.”
