Against earlier denials, the office of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP), now confirms the torturing of the ex-agitator and phase 1 delegate of PAP, Pere Ebidouwei, at the programme’s office located along Buzi Close, Off, Amazon Street, Abuja.

NAIJA LIVE TV earlier reported that a PAP delegate was allegedly strangled by soldiers in the amnesty office in Abuja, while with other delegates to submit their documents in regards to the recently delisted Amnesty beneficiaries by the IA Ndiomu, please disregard same as he is still alive. It was a misrepresentation of facts by those with him.

In a statement on Friday through the media office, PAP confirmed that Ebidouwei was at the office and was disciplined by the securities attached to the office.

Contrary to the claim by the office, PAP said security agents on duty at the office gate disciplined the ex-agitator, Ebidouwei, but alleged he pretended to give up the ghost.

Further confirming the incident, the statement said that the PAP office arranged for “a quick medical attention” to revive the all almost lifeless body of the victim, adding that he was also taken to the hospital.


NAIJA LIVE TV further gathered that a security officer had sent N10,000 through transaction to one of the delegates present to take the victim to the hospital. Seeing that the money was not enough to take care of the medical bills of the almost lifeless PAP delegate, the delegates called the security officer and returned the money through POS transfer.

But the PAP statement alleged that “On Thursday September 7, 2023, one Mr. Pere Ebidouwei, a phase 1 delegate of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) from Bayelsa State had attempted to forcefully gain entrance into the annex office of the PAP located along Buzi Close, Off, Amazon Street, Abuja.

“He was stopped by the security agents on duty and as customary asked to present a valid notice of invitation after he claimed to have been invited by a staff. The simple request got him infuriated. He started cussing and insisting that he must be allowed to enter.

“The security operatives sensing that he was intoxicated with hard substance and reeking of alcohol, decided to be more careful with him. Also, in keeping to their professional rules of engagement. But the harder they tried, the more the deliberate provocation.

“They decided to discipline him subtly to maintain sanity in the area as the scene was becoming very embarrassing to officials of the PAP and other national as well as foreign institutions with offices around the same vicinity.

“Suprisingly, Ebidouwei in what appeared to be a drama, pretended to have passed out. This led to the office arranging for a quick medical attention on the orders of the Chief Security Officer. At the hospital he was confirmed to be okay without any injury but a few bruises he personally inflicted on himself.”

Recall that PAP Interim Administrator, Gen. Barry Ndiomu, on Friday, through his legal team, Lorenzo & Co., said “no such incident ever took place on or within the premises of the PAP or outside the office of the distinguished Interim Administrator Gen. Barry T. Ndiomu.”

It is therefore surprising that PAP who alleged that nothing of such happened, is again confirming that Pere Ebidouwei was only disciplined.
