Following intelligence report that ex-militants plan to protest the non-payment of their monthly allowances men of the Nigerian Army, Navy, Police and Department of State Services have over the city of Warri, Delta state.

According to a report by Vanguard, the security operatives who are stationed in strategic locations in the city plan to stop any unlawful protest by the militants.

Speaking on the planned protest, special adviser to the President on Niger Delta Affairs and coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Brig-Gen. Paul Boroh (retd) said there was no need for the protest.

“It is true that there are some debts, but the money has come. The Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, will start payment from today or tomorrow. I have long passed this information to the ex-militants that payment will start soon. I do not know why some of them are still insisting on the protest.”

A DSS source quoted by the newspaper said the ex-militants planned to carry out the protest last Wednesday and Thursday, but security operatives aborted same.

 “With the feelers we now have, anything can happen as they withdrew into their shell in the last few days. But I think it is not even a security concern to stop their protest. The fear is whether they will be lawful about it, added to concerns that hoodlums can take advantage of the situation,” he said.

Meanwhile, at about 5000 members of the Reformed Oodua People’s Congress stormed the Imushin community in Ogun State, to confront suspected militants in the area.

The OPC members, which did not carry any weapon, were only armed with charms, which they claimed had powers arrived the town from Lagos and Ogun states
