Tompolo sends President Buhari serious warning
Embattled ex-militant chief, Government Ekpemupolo alias Tompolo, has issued a statement of threat to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Daily Post reports that Tompolo stated in his communique that President Muhammadu Buhari will not know peace if the Niger Delta region knows no peace.
Tompolo said this in reaction to allegations that he attacked oil installations in Warri area of Delta state.
The statement issued by his media aide, Paul Bebenimibo, reads in part: “Well, I am sure this is what President Buhari is looking for. He should allow the people of the Niger Delta Region to know peace, otherwise he will not know peace as well.”
The former militant lord was accused of being the spearhead of an alleged militant attack in which a gas pipeline in Warri southwest local government are was blown up.
Tompolo who condemned the act, said his name is being associated with the crime just because he has a pending case in court with the federal government. He advised those behind the crime to desist from such dastard acts.
