Description

Nigeria's amnesty programme for Niger Delta militants has been in place since 2009, when the late president Umaru Yar' Adua was in power. His successor, Goodluck Jonathan continued and sustained the programme, which gave payouts and promised to train and rehabilitate the youths that had previously destabilized oil production in the Delta for years. Now, President Muhammadu Buhari says he plans to "streamline" the amnesty.
Ex-militants warn if the payouts stop, they will rearm.
