    Brig.Gen. Paul Boroh said,”There is no record of community leaders in
    Delta State that has submitted names of youths from the Niger Delta
    Oil bearing communities to the office of Special Adviser to the
    President on Niger Delta, and Chairman of the Presidential Amnesty
    Programme, Brig. Gen. Paul Boroh over the pipe lines surveillance

    expressed dismay over reports (print & electronic) credited to Brig. Gen.
    Paul Boroh wherein he allegedly claimed that the nine Niger Delta
    States had forwarded names of affected youths in the area.

    youths in the nine Niger Delta States has forwarded names of the

    anything short of what it has proposed to the Federal Government.

    was conducted stressing that till date, no Isoko youth has been
    included in the amnesty programme.

    abducted the students of the Lagos State Model School who demanded to
    be included in the Amnesty Programme as a condition for the release of
    the kids.
