National chairman, Phase II ex-militants, Mr Stephen Ebisinte has urged the Federal Government to, as matter necessity, clear backlog of all unpaid monthly allowances owed them, as well as housing allowances promised them during the disarmament segment of the amnesty programme, saying they are running out of patience.

Ebisinte who spoke with newsmen, noted that their monthly stipends had not been paid in the last six months.

He called on the Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, to release approved funds to enable the Amnesty Office effect payment of the over-delayed outstanding arrears, stressing that such act of mistreatment “was not supposed to occur” when ex-militants have been working assiduously to maintain the peace in the region.
