Tompolo’s Security Aides Withdrawn


The Nigeria Police Force, has withdrawn the security aides approved for former militant leader Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo by the Yar’Adua led-Federal Government.

The security aides, who had been with Tompolo for nearly six years, were withdrawn soon after Justice Ibrahim Buba issued the first bench warrant against the ex-militant leader, last month.

In addition, security chiefs in the Niger-Delta were reportedly strategizing on how to track down Tompolo following the court order to produce him on February 19.

A Federal High Court in Lagos had authorised the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to seize some assets belonging to the former militant warlord.

The presiding judge, Justice Ibrahim Buba ordered the anti-graft agency to take possession of the concerned assets pending when Tompolo will make himself available to answer charges of N45.9bn fraud preferred against him and nine others.

The judge said if Tompolo failed to appear within three months of the order, the Federal Government may proceed to auction the assets and other properties.
