THERE is palpable fear that another season of militancy mess looms in the Southern part of the country as bitterness over some unfulfilled obligations agreed to in the Niger Delta Amnesty Deal reaches the snapping point. National Daily at the weekend authoritatively gathered that members of a former militant group may have resolved to let hell loose over their unpaid allowances.

Ex-militants give Federal Government ultimatum

The group, which is said to be spoiling for a deadly showdown, has given the federal government the end of this month to clear the allowance arrears or risk totally ruining the already epileptic deal. In a threat which may compound the terror siege in the country, the Niger Delta group hinted it could join forces with the dreaded Islamic sect, Boko Haram, to press their case.
