Former militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo
Former Commander of Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger-Delta, Government Ekpemupolo alias Tompolo, has said his enemies are bent on bringing him down with lies.
Former militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo on Monday has denied claims he issued any ultimatum to President Muhammadu Buhari to withdraw military from the region or he would blow up oil pipelines.
Speaking through his Media Adviser, Mr. Paul Bebenimibo, Tompolo said the statement of threat was false. He begged those trying to pull him down to stop as his God is not asleep.“We wish to state categorically that the said publication is not from Tompolo, rather it is the work of those that have sworn to kill him by all means, but Jehovah God forbid. Tompolo has stated before now, that he will not resort to violence or destroy oil facilities because of the issue he is having with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.“No amount of provocation and persecution can make him to destroy the country that he has helped to build in recent time. He will wisely continue to pursue his course legally.“It is his (Tompolo) prayer for those that are pushing for his death to have a re-think as he believes fervently in Jehovah God, Who sees the heart of every human being, knows that he has no evil intention against Nigeria or any individual.Therefore, he will come out stronger in the face of these temptations and trials,” he said
