More than 30 Nigerian students under the Niger Delta Amnesty Programme have besieged the Nigerian High Commission in Pretoria over what they call unpaid stipends, going back four months.

The students, who came in buses from Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape Province, travelled over a thousand kilometres to the mission and insisted they would remain there till they are paid.
