APC Chieftain Tells EFCC To Declare Tompolo Wanted
Prince Arerebo Bodi, a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa state, has advised Government Ekpemupolo, also known as Tompolo, to surrender himself to the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for questioning.
He said: “All what Tompolo has been saying about Timipre Sylva and leadership of the APC in Bayelsa state is fraud,” he said. For Tompolo to accuse Sylva and APC leaders in the state of orchestrating pipeline vandalism in Delta is false.”
The APC chieftain added that if Tompolo refuses to submit himself the commission should declare him wanted.
In another development, the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) has warned President Muhammadu Buhari and the federal government against witch-hunting Tompolo, who has been charged with theft and money laundering.
According to the group, the prosecution of Tompolo, which is a part of Buhari’s anti-corruption war, is singling out their ethnic group.
