Boroh allegedly fired, passport seized ―Source
UNCONFIRMED reports say the Special Adviser on Niger Delta and head of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Brigadier-General Paul Boroh (retd), might have been fired.
His sack, it was gathered, was hinged on the loss of confidence in him by the presidency for being allegedly unable to effectively manage the Amnesty Programme designed to keep militancy and agitations at bay in the Niger Delta.
Recall that regrouping militants groups from the Niger Delta led by the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) has been, in the last one week, threatening to resume lethal attacks on critical oil and gas assets over grievances yet to be attended to by the Federal Government.
A presidential source, according to PigPen Online, revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari ordered Boroh’s sack and chop for replacement.
It was also gathered that his international passport has been allegedly seized.
Boroh, who’s, however, still holding forte in office and even addressed protesters who staged a protest against his alleged disengagement over the weekend, is expected to quit his seat shortly, the source noted, adding: “A formal announcement would be made anytime from now.”
But speaking with Alaowei Cleric, media aide to the president of the Ijaw People’s Congress (IYC), Pereotubo Oweilaemi, Esq., Worldwide, he described the report as a rumour yet to be substantiated.
“It is all rumour. No official communication yet. The plan may be an issue and that is why people are protesting against it already, but no official communication yet,” Cleric, a lawyer, submitted.
