Ex-militants in Bayelsa State have taken to the streets to protest thereby calling for the removing of Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Charles Dokubo.
The protesting militants on Monday morning blocked the Mbiama axis of the East/West highway, inflicting a gridlock that lasted for about two hours.
According to them, creating the blockade is to ship a message to the Federal Government that they don’t seem to be prepared to just accept ‘no’ for a solution.
They are additionally complained in regards to the non-payment of their month-to-month stipend by the Federal Government, thereby issuing a 7-day ultimatum.
The protesters say they gained’t take away it till they obtain a cellphone call from the amnesty workplace agreeing to pay them their excellent allowance owed them.
President Muhammadu Buhari appointed Charles Dokubo on March 13, 2018, to exchange the previous coordinator, Brigadier-General Paul Boroh (Retd).
The President directed the National Security Adviser (NSA) to hold out a full investigation into the actions of the Amnesty Programme from 2015 so far, particularly allegations of monetary impropriety and different acts which might be allegedly detrimental to the aims of the Presidential Amnesty Programme.
