The Federal Government has urged the South African Government to correct the negative reports by its media against former Niger Delta militants currently undergoing trainings in South Africa.
Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta Kingsley Kuku condemned the reports, saying they are an attempt to provoke the South African Government against the former militants.  
Kuku spoke in Abuja when South African High Commissioner, Ambassador Kingsley Mamabolo, visited the Presidential Amnesty Office. 
He criticised a recent documentary on the South Africa Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), saying it degraded the ex-militants in South Africa.
In a statement by the Head of Media and Communications, Henry Ugbolue, the Federal Government said: “This is not fair; it is unjust, especially given that these youths were sent to the friendly country of South Africa with the best of intentions; to have them trained in first class facilities so as to achieve their speedy reintegration into the civil society.
