The association of 22 documented ex-Niger Delta Militants has called on President Goodluck Jonathan to sack his Special Adviser on the Niger Delta, Mr Kingsley Kuku over allegations of denial of their amnesty entitlements.

The group in a letter signed by their leader, Mr Andrew Joel Azazi , accused Kuku of denying them their amnesty entitlements, saying that the program needs total overhaul as the Special Adviser "has lost the original vision behind the scheme".

The letter, which was also addressed to Jonathan read: "It is regrettable to note that, current happenings from the office of the special adviser to the president on Niger delta are deliberately calculated to truncate the amnesty program."
