Chief Government Ekpemupolo (aka Tompolo), has denied any links with militants who are destroying and bombing oil installations in the Niger Delta region in his name.
According to Mr. Paul Bebenimibo, his media consultant, who spoke on behalf of Tompolo, who had been on exile, he noted that he (Tompolo) did not send any group or militants to attack oil facilities.
“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.”
