Some beneficiaries of the Phase two amnesty programme have begged President Mohammadu Buhari to pay their allowances which they alleged was stopped since March, 2012.
The beneficiaries from Delta State who protested to the premises of the Nigeria Union of Journalist in Benin City Wednesday said they were warned not to protest in Delta State again.
Two ‘ex-generals’, Pawpaw Julius and Gideon Ogbe who led the protest accused former head of the amnesty programme, Kingsley Kuku of conniving with their leaders to defraud them.
They said the few allowances they collected were not paid into their individual account but into an account belonging to camp leaders.
The protesters said they only opened account with the United Bank for Africa but were surprised that their allowances were paid into a Fidelity Bank account.
According to them “Kingsley Kuku and the amnesty officials got some slots from camp leaders which enhance the evil business of diverting salary and paying everything in the leaders’ account with our names being impersonated by unknown persons.
“Vocational training is no longer in progress and most of our international passports are lying dormant in the offices.”
