Ex-militant leader, Chief Government Ekpemupolo, also known as Tompolo, has denied connections whatsoever with militants who are threatening more attacks on oil instalments in the Niger Delta.
In a statement by Mr. Paul Bebenimibo, his media consultant, on Sunday, Tompolo said he did not send any group of persons to attack oil facilities because of his case with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
He said, “The attention of my client, High Chief Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo has been drawn to an online publication by a faceless person or persons, that militants have vowed to attack more oil facilities over Tompolo if the Federal Government of Nigeria refused to drop the criminal charges against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
“High Chief Ekpemupolo (Tompolo) unequivocally dissociates himself from this threat as he did not send anyone to attack oil facilities in the Niger Delta region because of his case with the EFCC. Tompolo has consistently denied involvement in the resurgence of bombing of oil facilities in the Niger Delta region.”
