Former Niger-Delta Militants Protest In Abuja Over Unpaid Allowances.

Not fewer than 200 former militants from the Niger Delta on Wednesday stormed the National Assembly in protest of the non-payment of their allowances in Abuja.


The protesting militants who carried placards and sang various solidarity songs called on National Assembly members to intervene in the non-payment of their allowances by the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta and Coordinator of the Programme, Retired Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh.

According to them,”We are not here to disturb the peace of the Nation, but to call on the government to pay our allowances as we are suffering. The amnesty office owes us amnesty allowances running to millions of Naira and we want our money,” spokesman of the protesters said.


The former militants also called for the removal of Gen. Boro, who they described as the stumbling block towards the payment of their allowances.’
