Nigeria will meet all overdue payments to ex-militants in Niger Delta- government

YENAGOA, Nigeria – Nigeria will soon pay all overdue cash stipends to former militants who signed up for an amnesty in 2009 in the Niger Delta oil hub, the government said on Thursday.

“We advise all to remain calm as all stipend arrears and other outstanding payments under the programme will soon be paid,” the office of the

government amnesty programme said in a statement.

Militants have threatened to resume attacking oil facilities should the cash

payments not be made.
