I Did Not Give Buhari Any Ultimatum To Withdraw Soldiers From Niger-Delta – Tompolo Speaks Out


Ex-militant, Tompolo has cleared the air about
giving the presidency an ultimatum to withdraw
soldiers in the Niger-Delta region.
Former General Officer Commanding, GOC,
Movement for the Emancipation of the
Niger-Delta, Government Ekpemupolo, alias
Tompolo, Monday, denied issuing any
ultimatum to President Muhammadu Buhari
to withdraw military from the region or he
would blow up oil pipelines.
Tompolo’s Media Adviser, Mr. Paul
Bebenimibo, in a statement denied the
purported statement which was trending on
social media.
“We wish to state categorically that the
said publication is not from Tompolo,
rather it is the work of those that have
sworn to kill him by all means, but
Jehovah God forbid. Tompolo has stated
before now, that he will not resort to
violence or destroy oil facilities because of
the issue he is having with the Economic
and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
“No amount of provocation and
persecution can make him to destroy the
country that he has helped to build in
recent time. He will wisely continue to
pursue his course legally,” he added.
Bebenimibo added:-
“It is his (Tompolo) prayer for those that
are pushing for his death to have a re-
think as he believes fervently in Jehovah
God, Who sees the heart of every human
being, knows that he has no evil intention
against Nigeria or any
individual.Therefore, he will come out
stronger in the face of these temptations
and trials.”
