The Niger Delta crisis has been a phenomenon that has drawn concern and attraction from within and outside the shores of the country Nigeria. The tension in the region has progressed from peaceful agitation to a violent one and this has brought about instability in the region. This prompted the Nigerian government to grant an unconditional pardon or amnesty to the Niger Delta militants. The aim or objective of this study is tailored towards determining if the amnesty granted to the former militia combatants is the path to peace in the Niger Delta region. The theoretical framework adopted in the study is the frustration aggression theory. The concept of amnesty, disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR) and peace was discussed in the course of the study. This study adopted the secondary method of data collection. The secondary data was sourced from relevant books, journals, articles, newspapers and online materials. The findings in this study revealed that the amnesty offer granted to the ex-combatant is temporal. And so, this study concluded that though the presidential amnesty if well implemented is a panacea to close the curtain on militancy in the region, until the grievances of the region are addressed to reverse the development deficit, peace will continue to be elusive if the fundamental causes of the crisis or conflict are left unaddressed.
