Niger Delta ex-militants have once again blocked the Mbiama axis of East-West road over nonpayment of allowances and fears of scrapping the Amnesty program.
They blocked the access road and are preventing free flow of traffic in protest against the non-payment of their Amnesty allowances for months.
The militants’ fear is borne from the fact that their future doesn’t feel secured under the newly inaugurated President Muhammadu Buhari Government.
This is not the first time that the militants would be carrying out such actions over unpaid allowances.
Early in May, a group of Niger Delta ex-militants, who are beneficiaries of the Amnesty Programme at the Bradama Training Centre, protested unpaid allowances and non-issuance of certificates at the completion of their training.
