18 Ex-militant leaders angry, sent protest letters to President Buhari

Niger delta militants

Eighteen former militant leaders from three states of the Niger Delta on Wednesday sent a protest letter to President Muhammadu Buhari over alleged abuse of court processes by the Presidential Amnesty Office over the ongoing four years litigation on non-inclusion in the ongoing implementation process in the region.

The eighteen aggrieved ex-militant leaders, drawn from Delta, Rivers and Bayelsa states, stated that though a similar protest letter was sent to the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo during the absence of the president, the actions and disposition of the amnesty office to the peaceful resolutions and disrespect to court processes is provocative and vexatious.

 The protest letter, signed by the aggrieved ex-militants, Asenekiri Oyinle, Angiama-Owei Oyindoubra, John Government, Henry Gomoromo, John Sawyer, Trydi Okpeke, Dollar Motor, Selebi Ayowei, Bobra Angese, Ekerebi Umber and others, alleged that the sense of frustration and deceit played out during the disgraceful era of Kingsley Kuku led amnesty committee was sustained by the Brig. Gen. Paul Boroh committee without due respect to the court processes and orders.

According to the aggrieved ex-militants, the decision to sent a separate letter to the President,Muhammadu Buhari, is line with their peaceful disposition towards the peace initiatives under the present administration,” though we have witnessed the numerous achievements under the present administration of President Muhammadu Buahri and the Amnesty office, the amnesty penchant for disrespect to the rule of law and court processes is causing agitation among our followers”
According to the Ex-militant leaders: “The amnesty committee erred by refusing to include them in the ongoing amnesty programme after series of resolutions from meetings with the past and present National Security Advisers to the President, late General Owei Azazi and Col. Dasuki Sambo respectively.
“Instead of respecting the resolutions and directives from the National Security Adviser, Dasuki Sambo, the Amnesty Committee turned down the call to include the ex-militants and adopted a divide and rule tactics with the inclusion of three out of the 22 persons.

“They embraced the amnesty under the third phase, warned that though they embraced amnesty in 2012 and have tendered their grievances before a competent Federal High Court with suit number FHC/YNG/CS/102/2013 in compliance with the peace preached by the federal government, the failure of the presidential amnesty office to comply with court order to appear before it and find way to settle out of court with the ex-militant is provoking renewed tension and frustration among youths of the region”.

The ex-militant said though the case against the amnesty office is adjourned till November 6th, 2017,” the failure of the Amnesty office to appear in Court or settle out of Court, as requested by them and ordered by the Court, showed that the option left may not be desirable to the peace initiative secured by the present administration. We are peace loving leaders and resolved to draw your attention to the deliberate undoing of the peace in the region by the Amnesty office led by Brig. Gen. Paul Boroh.”

It would be recalled that the aggrieved ex-militants in a statement of Claim against the Presidential Amnesty Implementation Committee had sought the Court order compelling the Amnesty Committee to approve reasonable slots for them as agreed at one of the peace meetings on 19th December,2011.

 “For the Court to compel the defendants to pay due allowances of the plaintiffs and their foot soldiers from March,2012 Until the plaintiffs are fully settled under the Niger Delta Amnesty Committee. To compel the defendants to immediately send the plaintiffs and their foot soldiers for the mandatory skills acquisition training for the Niger Delta militants.”
