Wanted former militant leader, Tompolo has reportedly fled to Libya in order to evade arrest by security operatives in Nigeria.
Former militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo who is on the run from security operatives has reportedly fled to Libya.
This was released in a statement by the Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force, JNDLF. The group who had last week, threatened to test six missiles in the Niger Delta states, beginning from tomorrow, said: “The Military can’t locate Tompolo but we have identified where he is now.”
Speaking on behalf of the group, General Akotebe Darikoro, Commander, General Duties, General Torunanaowei Latei, Creeks Network Coordinator, General Agbakakuro Owei-Tauro, Pipelines Bleeding Expert and General Pulokiri Ebiladei, Intelligence Bureau of JNDLF said:
“Presently, Tompolo is in Libya and we’ll get him dead or alive for betraying us in supporting the federal government against us.”
“Nigerian Military has weak intelligence gathering mechanism hence they could not identify our modu oparandi. Nigerian military is only good in carrying AK47 to harass innocent people and raping young girls and women.” the group further alleged.
However, some people close to Tompolo have said the news should be regarded as another joke as they insisted that nothing, not even the Nigerian Army can make Tompolo leave his own country.
