The Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) worldwide, on Wednesday warned that ex-militants in the Niger Delta region will be forced to resume hostilities if the Federal Government fails to immediately pay all outstanding stipends, tuition fees and other related entrepreneurship in-training allowances owed ex-militants.

IYC spoke through its spokesperson, Barr. Eric Omare, in a statement made available in Warri and warned of brewing crisis in the region over hardship occasioned by accumulated stipends owed ex-militants by the federal government.

It also condemned alleged insensitive disposition of the Coordinator of the Amnesty Programme, General Paul Boroh, to the suffering of the ex-militants.

It said, “We are amazed that instead of General Boroh to take extra-ordinary steps and impress it on the Ministry of Finance, the sensitive nature of the amnesty programme he is rather sending text messages without any result.”

IYC also called on the National Security Adviser (NSA), General Mohammed Munguno, under whose office the amnesty programme is domiciled, to take steps to immediately effect the relevant payments to avoid unnecessary hostility in the Niger Delta region.
