Ex militants in Cross River State took to the streets of Calabar today Monday to protest the poor handling of the process of integration.
The former agitators who took their protest to the governor’s office in Calabar also accused governor Ayade’s aide, Austin Ibok of failure in handling the process.
One of them who spoke with our reporter said
“We represent one of the factions in this particular struggling, we went for training though the Ecowas amnesty program, we came back from training, we were promised a lot of things but till now we have not gotten any of those things and the government keep promising yet nothing has happened… everytime we come here they will give us stipend and tell us to go and return but we don’t want that kind of thing again. Those from our sister state have been properly integrated. We want the same integration like what is happening in the North”
They accused the state government of neglecting them five months after their return to the state.
