The tense security situation in Ohafia local government area in Abia has forced thousands of beneficiaries of the federal government’s conditional cash transfer programme to the state capital Umuahia to receive their monthly stipends.

“We were on our way to the headquarters on Thursday for the payment but midway, the Department of State Service said we should go back,” head of the programme in Abia, Okeziem Nwoko, said during the disbursement exercise on Tuesday in Umuahia.

“We were told that intelligence report did not permit our holding the payment in Ohafia, so we came back and invited the beneficiaries to Umuahia.

“It is the only local government that has to be paid in Umuahia. Other beneficiaries were paid at different pay points in their council areas,” Mr Nwoko said.
