As the first set of ex-militants for undergraduate studies in Malaysia traveled out of the country yesterday, High Commissioner to Ghana, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, human rights
activist, Mr. Femi Falana, and Senator David Brigidi, have charged the beneficiaries against dragging Nigeria's name in the mud.
This is coming on the heels of the disappearance at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, of two of the 42 ex-militants on their way to South Africa for skills acquisition training two weeks ago.
The ex-militants, 74 in number and drawn from Bayelsa, Edo, Delta, Imo, Ondo and Rivers States, are expected to take undergraduate courses Business Management, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering at Linton University, Malaysia, within the next four years.
Sending off the ex-militants who had undergone non-violence training at Obubra,Cross Rivers State, Nigeria's High Commissioner to Ghana, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, advised them to see themselves as the nation's ambassadors.
