Some former Niger Delta militants have stormed the main entrance of the National Assembly complex, to demand payment of their allowances, and the sacking of the Coordinator, Presidential Amnesty Programme, Brig.-General Paul Boroh.
The ex-militants carried placards with the inscriptions, ‘Dokubo Must Go’ and ‘Pay Us Our Stipends’.
The protesters arrived at the gate of the National Assembly, as the Lawmakers prepared to receive President Muhammadu Buhari, to present the 2019 Appropriation Bill.
While the presentation was scheduled for 11am, the protesters had stormed the gate as early as 10am.
The ex-militants said the protest was to draw the attention of the President, to the alleged mismanagement of the programme.
