Tompolo disassociates self from Niger Delta Avengers

Ex-militant leader, Mr. Government Ekpemupolo (aka Tompolo), has disassociated himself from Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), a new militant group, which claimed responsibility for the recent attacks on oil pipelines and security men in Niger-Delta.

Tompolo, who is facing trial in absentia alongside six brothers of a former Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, Patrick Akpobolokemi, over N47 billion fraud, said he had no connection with Niger Delta Avengers in a signed statement mailed electronically to newsmen in Warri.


The statement reads in part: “It baffles me that the Nigerian military has refused to believe that I am not part of the group and its activities. I am obviously a victim of circumstance in this matter because of my case with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

“May I once again point out that those accusing me of the destruction of oil facilities in part of Delta are simply looking for relevance, recognition and pipeline surveillance contracts,’’ he said.
