Ex-militant and Niger Delta activist, Sobomabo Jackrich aka Egberipapa, has urged President Goodluck Jonathan to as a matter of urgency call for the investigation of the Amnesty Office headed by Mr. Kingsley Kuku, over what he described as colossal fraud in the programme.

He also called for the immediate removal of Kuku as a prelude to bringing about decorum and transparency in the amnesty programme.

Jackrich in a statement in Port Harcourt alleged the shortchanging and arbitrary payment delays of ex-militant by Kuku and his staff.

Speaking further he accused the President’s Special Adviser of “engaging in under-hand, deceitful and criminal activities capable of giving rise to a regime of criminality in the country.”

According to Jackrich Kingsley Kuku has devised a way of getting back at recognized ‘generals’ in the amnesty, who dared oppose or expose his shady and fraudulent manipulations and the process of disbursement of the funds.

Jackrich who is the Director General of Network for the Defense of

Democracy and Good Governance (NDDGG) also emphasized the need for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to beam its searchlight on the amnesty office to unearth the fraudulent activities that has been a regular occurrence since Kuku was appointed.
