An unnamed hotel in Delta State serving as temporary residence for ex-militants undergoing training under the Federal Government Amnesty Programme was bombed on Monday.
As a result of the bombing, a section of the hotel building collapsed and several other rooms were affected. Shattered blocks, doors and roof were all over the place.
According to reports, the ex-militants accused the management of the hotel of scheming to deprive them of their entitlements and released an onslaught of dynamites on the hotel, located in Osubi in Okpe Local Government area in Delta State.
The hotel management and a source close to the consultant, Generic College, however, described the allegation as unfounded.
Sources saythat the ex-militants had little interest in gaining an education or training. Instead, they had demanded that the consultant pay them money meant for their hotel accommodation and other allowances.
Reports say that the ex-militants and the consultants have not been on friendly ground during the past months.
The Delta State Commissioner of Police, visited the site, joined by the Director of the SSS in the state as well as Area Commanderd of Police in Ughelli and Warri. There are no exact details of the arrests.
The Joint Task Force (JTF) were said to have suspects in custody.
