WARRI—About 30 ex- militants have urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and the Presidential Amnesty Office in Abuja to  arrest  their trainer on poultry and fishery production,  who allegedly disappeared with  funds  meant to empower them  at the end of their training programme.

A petition by Prince Meshack Bebenimibo and Money Presley, on behalf of the 30  ex- militants, alleged that they had  completed their training programme since July 2017, adding that the Managing Director of the firm, Mr Tamuno, who was to have released their empowerments to  them to start their own businesses  had allegedly disappeared.

The petition which was also addressed to the Department of State Services, DSS, enjoined the various security agencies and the amnesty office to recover the money allegedly released by the amnesty office to Tamuno.
