Former militant leader, Chief Government Ekpemupolo, better known as Tompolo, declared wanted by the Nigerian government in connection with his trial over corruption-related charges, has fled to Libya, the Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force, JNDLF, has revealed.
This was contained in a statement issued on Monday by 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.
The group, which had threatened to launch six missiles in Niger Delta states starting from tomorrow (Tuesday), stated that “the Military can’t locate Tompolo but we have identified where he is now.
“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 militant group taunted.
