WARRI—Ijaw Peoples Development Initiative, IPDI, has flayed alleged delay in integrating some ex-agitatorss into the Federal Government’s Amnesty Programme several years after they laid down their arms.
President of the body, Mr Austin Ozobo, in a statement yesterday in Warri, Delta State, noted that the delay was making the ex- agitators who keyed into the amnesty programme since 2011 believe that they were deceived to embrace peace, urging the new Coordinator of the Amnesty Programme, Professor Charles Dokubo, to address the matter.
“Our attention has been drawn to the continued delay in integrating ex-agitators of the third phase into the amnesty programme after embracing the programme. Some of the groups to be integrated are Asam Camp, led by ‘General’ Mighty Man, Forest Soldiers Camp, led by ‘General’ Ogailo Iborry, among others, Ozobo said.
