Federal Government withdraws sponsorship of 6 Nigerian Students in Russia.

Sponsorship of six Niger-Delta students at the Peoples Friendship University in Moscow, Russia has been withdrawn by President Goodluck Jonathan. 

The 24-student delegates were sent under a special scholarship scheme for Niger Deltan youths to study in Moscow. The six students were found to be part of a group of students that attacked the Nigerian embassy in Moscow, on Monday.

The government says these students have breached the code of conduct for delegates on scholarship that they signed before their departure from Nigeria’.
He described their action as gross misconduct, which the Nigerian government cannot tolerate.
The students said they had gone on rampage because they were owed their in-training allowance for six months.
