Tompolo accuses APC leaders of trying to frame him

18 January 2016, 15:08

Warri - Ex-Niger Delta militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo, popularly known as Tompolo, has cried out over plans by some All Progressive Congress (APC) leaders in the region to link him to last week’s attack on oil facilities, reports Punch.

Tompolo said the APC leaders in Bayelsa and Delta states were after him for refusing to join the ruling party.

Tompolo in a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari said the APC’s governorship candidate in Bayelsa State, Timipre Sylva is hell bent on linking him to the renewed vandalism of oil facilities in the Niger Delta region because he did not support Sylva’s appointment as a Special Adviser and Chairman of the Presidential Amnesty Programme committee.

He also accused some few young men from Warri South-West LGA of Delta State, who joined the party from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after the 2015 presidential election, of carrying out the attacks in order to smear his name.
