THE senior presidential adviser on the north, Richard Todwong, has urged the Acholi war claimants to withdraw the civil suit against the Government from Gulu High Court.

The Acholi are seeking sh1.4 trillion as compensation for 245,046 animals, which were eaten by both the LRA and UPDF during the war in Pader, Gulu, Kitgum and Amuru districts.

Todwong told journalists in Gulu on Wednesday that the President was ready to meet the claimants and settle the problem amicably.

“The President is concerned about the increasing number of ghost or fake claimants. Some of them are inflating the number of cattle.”

He said the President would soon meet their leader and their lawyer, Donge & Co. Advocates, to discuss how the fake claimants would be deleted from the list.

In March, Justice Remmy Kasule adjourned the hearing of the case to June 24 to give time to the Government to settle the case out of court.

Each of the war claimants contributed sh5,000 towards the facilitation of their lawyers.
