Tompolo finally agrees to face EFCC

28 January 2016, 15:09

Abuja - Former militant warlord, Government Ekpemupolo also known as Tompolo, who the Economic Financial and Crimes Commission (EFCC) has threatened to declare wanted over fraud related issues, has finally agreed to honour the invitation of the anti graft body, Vanguard reports.

He said he is now ready to face the anti graft commission to prove his innocence.

Tompolo is wanted to answer questions connected to fraud cases in  The Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).

A statement on Thursday morning by Comrade Paul Bebenimibo, Tompolo’s media aide, denied his involvement in the January 15 bombing of oil facilities in Warri, adding Tompolo’s legal team is ready for his day in court.

The statement said: “Chief Government Ekpemupolo (Tompolo) has consistently maintained that he has no hand in the recent bombing of oil pipelines in the creeks of Delta State.

“Let it be known to Nigerians and the entire World that, Tompolo will never wage a war against the Federal Government, as he has sworn in 2009 when he accepted the Presidential amnesty declared by late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua.

“He has kept faith with Nigeria. He has promised to work with the present administration unconditionally, and he stands by that declaration.
