    Okorocha grants amnesty to 1000 militants


    Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state has granted amnesty to 1000 militants from the oil producing area of Ohaji Egbema and Oguta local government areas of the state.
    This follows the decision of the militants to drop their arms and embrace peace, which is crucial to finding a lasting solution to the underdevelopment and infrastructural decay in the state.
    Independent recalled that militants in the area have allegedly joined their colleagues in other Niger Delta states to blow up over seven oil installations and pipelines in the area.
    Rattled by the action, Okorocha organized a programme to grant pardon to all militants, cultists and agitators in the area.
    The militants were said to have handed over some of their arms which comprise:  Ak-47 riffles, rocket launchers, pistols, charms, machetes, knives and axes, among others.
    Present at the event are the state police commissioner, state army commander, Director of SSS in Imo state as well as other security agencies.
