Ex-militants besiege NASS, seek removal of Boroh

More than 200 former Niger Delta militants on Wednesday protested against alleged non-payment of their allowances, accusing Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh (rtd) of a hindrance.

The placards carrying protesters besieged the National Assembly gate.

They carried placards and sang solidarity songs urging the National Assembly to intervene in the non payment of their allowances by the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta and Coordinator of the Amnesty Programme, Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh (rtd).

 ”We are not here to disturb the peace but to call on the government to pay our allowances. We are suffering. The amnesty office is owing us amnesty allowances running to millions of Naira. We want our money,” the protesters chorused.

The repentant militants called for the removal of Gen. Boroh, who they described as a stumbling block towards the payment of their allowances.’
