Niger Delta Youths Accuse Amnesty Office of Fraud, Demand Probe

Niger Delta youths have accused the Amnesty Office of fraud in its operations.
They are therefore calling for an audit of the Office under the leadership of Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh (retd).
In a petition sent to the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, the youths with the name, Niger Delta Youths for Change and Justice, said beneficiaries of the amnesty programme and award of contracts have been abused.
The petition signed by John Ogbemudia (Edo), Ughogho Uwvie (Delta), and Siasia Owei (Bayelsa), urged the Senate President to audit the Amnesty Office’s claims of successes and achievements in the area of youth empowerment.
The petition read in part, “We have observed the series of claims and counter-claims on the administration of Boroh at the Amnesty office and concluded that though they are either ignorant of the facts or out for pure gains from the office.
“We also observed that many have threatened to write the EFCC over alleged corrupt practices in the Amnesty office, but lack the courage. We are ready with the needed facts and figures required by the National Assembly to probe the office.”
