Former militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo, has begun fasting and prayers in his hideout for God’s intervention in his present travails.
It will be recall that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and the Police subsequently declared him wanted. Since then, the security agencies have been unable to locate his whereabouts following a bench warrant issued for his arrest over fraud charges by a Federal High Court in Lagos.
However, the ex-militant leader, an evangelist and adherent of the Amasiekumor deity of Gbaramatu Kingdom, Delta State, has reportedly become more spiritual.
A source told Vangaurd that: “Yes, he has gone into fasting and prayers because he knows that it is only God and not any human being that can deliver him from his present problems, planned by his enemies to undo him.”
His media adviser and consultant, Mr. Paul Bebenimibo, also corroborated the story by saying: “When one is in travail, which is his case, you will take your case to God and that is what he has done.
“I can confirm to you that Tompolo is presently on fasting and prayers to God so that He will intervene because he knows that He is a God of justice and will fight for him because he is innocent,” he said.
