Ex-militants threaten FG over unpaid amnesty allowances
The Niger Delta ex-militants say that amnesty beneficiaries scattered all over the world, are suffering.
The ex-militants issued an official statement saying “Worst of their situation is the unpredictability of when their nightmare will end while hunger and deprivation have put them in a very bad state of mind. Your Excellency, you will recall that this programme had within the last few years brought relative stability to our region and by extension, this country. This we owe to late President Umaru Yar’Adua, who in his wisdom proclaimed amnesty for ex-agitators and drew a plan of action towards ensuring lasting peace in the region through various training programmes.”
Pastor Rueben Wilson, a spokesperson for the Niger Delta ex-militants said that amnesty beneficiaries scattered all over the world, are suffering.
Adding that various complaints have been made to President Muhammadu Buhari.
The militants who gathered in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, said their reason for raising this alarm in the media was to get the President’s attention.
You will recall that 6000 Niger Delta students were delisted by foreign universities.
