Leader of the Ex-Militants group, General Ogalo Ibori appealed to the National Security Adviser, NSA to President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene and help their situation at properly integrating them into the society since they don’t want to go back to the creek.
Another member of the group, General Job Omotuwa said they can no longer feed their family and called on Ondo State government to also intervene on the matter.
The protesting ex-militants carrying placards with different inscriptions begged the Federal and Ondo State governments to address the situation in the interest of peaceful co-existence.
