Ex-agitators from first, second and third phases of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) have called on security agencies to bring to book those spreading falsehood about the PAP’s Interim Administrator, Maj.-Gen. Barry Ndiomu.
In a statement signed by the Chairman, Presidential Amnesty Strategic Communication Committee (STRACOM), Mr. Nature Dumale and the National President, first phase Ex-agitators; HRH Henry Eke as well as Heads of First Phase Agitators, Rivers, Granville Ideye; Bayelsa, Ebite Ifiemi; Second Phase, Sylvester Tambo and National Chairman, Third Phase, Gen. Tonye Bobo, described the falsehood against Ndiomu as criminal and unwarranted.
Recall the ex-agitators earlier raised alarm that enemies of the region had launched a campaign of calumny against President Muhammadu Buhari, the National Security Adviser (NSA) and Ndiomu to discredit their achievements in PAP.Ex-agitators Demand Arrest Of Persons Blackmailing Amnesty Boss, Ndiomu
Dumale, said in their recent antics, the detractors circulated a report claiming that the Niger Delta elders and traditional rulers petitioned Buhari and asked for the suspension of Ndiomu over alleged corrupt practices.
He noted that the names contained in the report were fictitious and could neither be traced to any elder nor traditional ruler in the Niger Delta, reiterating that all allegations contained in the report were false and preposterous as the faceless individuals making the claims.
Dumale said all ex-agitators are behind Ndiomu and his efficient management of the amnesty programme especially after all their investigations into allegations levelled against him gave him a clean bill of health.
He said traditional rulers in the Niger Delta, elders, chiefs and other stakeholders had also thrown their weight behind Ndiomu for sanitising PAP and sustaining the peace in the region.
Dumale further called on the Inspector-General of Police, the National Intelligence Agency, the Department of State Security and other security agencies to bring the perpetrators to book.
