Invasion of Nigeria Embassy in Moscow: Envoy Recommends Repatriation of Ex Militants.

Nigeria’s Ambassador to Russia, Mr. Assam Ekanem Assam, has recommended the repatriation of some Nigerian students in Moscow, who invaded the country’s embassy in Moscow on September 30.
Assam disclosed this News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Wednesday during a telephone interview.
He said the embassy was invaded by 21 ex Niger-Delta militants, who are currently studying in Russia under the Federal Government’s amnesty programme.
He accused the students of destroying furniture, cars, computers, televisions, communications system and a 17th century artefact  donated to the embassy by the Federal Ministry of Culture.
The ambassador, who said he was in Nigeria when the incident happened, told NAN that the deputy defence attaché was “ beaten up” by the protesting students.
He said the ex-militants were protesting unpaid allowances by the Federal Government, including warm clothing and transport allowances.
