Former Niger Delta militant, Government “Tompolo” Ekpemupolo has said that the Federal Government is planning to arrest former president, Goodluck Jonathan.

Tompolo said further, during an interview with Sahara Reporters, that the FG is trying to use him to get through to Jonathan

“I am just a victim of circumstances. I am just a perceived enemy of the government. The intention of the government was to arrest former President Goodluck Jonathan. But they feel that arresting Jonathan without arresting me may be difficult, that was the reason why they are after me,” he said.

Tompolo also denied being a sponsor of militant group, Niger Delta Avengers (NDA).

“I have refuted the allegation. Even the government knows that I am not a sponsor of the Niger Delta Avengers. They are only looking for something to nail me,” He said.
