Reaction trails granting amnesty to militants

The granting of amnesty to militants in Rivers by Governor Nyesom Wike has elicited reactions from Nigerians.

 Governor Wike had issued a 60-day window period to militants in the region to surrender their weapons or risk military action.

Following the inauguration of Rivers State Amnesty Programme Committee, a militant group has surrendered its arms.

A militant group led by one self-styled General Don Wanney led other members of the group operating in the Ogba/ Egbema/ Ndoni local government area to surrender their guns to the state government.

While some persons applauded the state government for the move, others criticised the move which they described as a way of enriching criminals while Niger Delta people continue to suffer.
