The Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force (JNDLF) allegedly said that the former militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo (popularly called Tompolo) has fled to Libya.
The Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force (JNDLF) on Monday, June 6, 2016 allegedly said that former militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo, (popularly called Tompolo) has fled to Libya.
This was contained in a statement signed 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 statement reads:“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 modus oparandi. Nigerian military is only good in carrying AK47 to harass innocent people and raping young girls and women.”
According to Vanguard, a close source to Tompolo laughed when contacted, saying, “I do not know what you want to say, they should leave Tompolo alone.”
The group had threatened to test six missiles in the Niger Delta region, beginning from Tuesday, June 7, 2016.
