Some ex- militants from the mandate Areas of Ondo State have lamented the failure and refusal of the federal and Ondo State Governments to honour their part of the Amnesty/Disarmament Agreement.
The ex- militants who had in 2017 laid down their arms said it is painful to note that government has failed to include them in the amnesty programme.
They called on the Security Adviser to the President to assist and helped in absorbing them in the Presidential Amnesty Programme.
They said, the mandate areas in Ondo State which comprises of Ilaje and Ese-Odo Local Government Areas of Ondo State have been abandoned and neglected by the government at various levels in its Presidential Amnesty Programme till date having been so disarmed for reintegration.
It is painful to note that till date, no step or nothing has been made to absorb, ameliorate, mitigate and cushion our suffering and such calls for your honest, drastic and prompt attention being the Honourable Security Adviser to the President to assist and help us to be so absorbed in the Presidential Amnesty Programme as an integral part of the integration process
