Ondo Amnesty Project Produces Massive Result

Repentant Militants in the riverine area of Ondo State, responding to the offer of amnesty by the Federal government have trooped out en-mass to lay down their arms and ammunition.

The programme which started on Thursday saw the militants troop out in record number to the five collations, including Igbekebo, Arogbo, Igbonla, Ajapa, and Igbokoda, all part of the southern senatorial district of the state to drop the cache.

Men of the Nigeria Army, the Navy, Police, civil defence and other paramilitary as well as representatives of each militant camp are present at the collation centers to ensure that only authentic militants benefited from the program.

Ondo state governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu had issued a 21-day ultimatum to the militants to submit their arms in the area.

The amnesty program was part of the requests made by the kidnappers of the six students of Igbonla Model School, Epe Lagos state.

The government of Ondo State which played a major role in securing the release of the students promised to facilitate the amnesty program.

Deputy Governor of the state, Agboola Ajayi who took the risk to effect the release and safety of the students is the Chairman of the amnesty program in the state.
