Former Niger Delta militants, under the auspices of the Second Phase Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP), Saturday, distanced themselves from a report that they threatened to attack branches of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) over unpaid stipends.
The ex-militants, however, pleaded with the Federal Government to pay their three months arrears of outstanding stipends.
The Chairman of the phase in Bayelsa State, Ebina Salvation, in a statement urged President Muhammadu Buhari to view the amnesty programme as a security programme.
He said the amnesty programme brought the fragile peace in the region lamenting that the delay in the payment of stipends to ex-militants was heating up the region.
