The 3 repentant militants got Nigerian government scholarships to study abroad under the Niger Delta Amnesty programme. 18 other students in various UK universities from different disciplines also graduated with second class upper division.

In an event organised by the Nigerian High Commission in the UK, on Friday, the Coordinator of Presidential Amnesty Programme, Paul Boroh, congratulated them for making Nigeria proud.

He restated Pres. Buhari’s commitment towards ensuring that the amnesty programme is sustained and its desired goals achieved. He cautioned the ‘economic saboteurs’ to embrace dialogue and support Mr. Buhari on his agenda to develop the Niger Delta region.

His words: “Pres. Buhari is ever ready to implement the blueprint upon which the amnesty programme was established. The era of impunity and phoney contracts are gone for good."

He also called on other militants such as the Niger Delta Avengers to emulate the militants who “laid down their arms to embrace education that can make them indispensable to the world.".... instead of always shouting 'awah oyel'.
