A group under the aegis of Trenchard Tank has called on President Buhari to stop victimising ex-militant leader, Tompolo.
Group asks Buhari to stop victimising ex-militant leader
They reminded the President that he is a product of the democracy others fought for, adding that victimising people is not the way to uphold it.
Vanguard reports that the group, through its spokesman, Damilola Alade said “the only crime Tompolo has committed is to remain noble and steadfast by standing by the icon and father of genuine democracy in Nigeria, President Jonathan, against those who sought to use him as a willing tool in rigging the elections in Bayelsa.”
Adding that “The APC should leave Tompolo alone and put on its thinking cap for the purpose of forging a way forward for our nation.”
The group also reminded the President that he is a product of the democracy others fought for, adding that victimising people is not the way to uphold it.
“what the present All Progressive Congress, APC, administration is doing amounts to taking us back to the dark and lawless era of 1983-84 when the rule of law, decency, decorum and civilized practices were thrown over-board in a clueless and condemnable exercise in populism which almost destroyed our nation,” the group said.
Tompolo was summoned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), to clear the air on a N34b fraud allegation levelled against him and the former boss of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Akpobolokemi.
The ex-militant leader has refused to honour the invitation, even as a court order and subsequently, a bench warrant was issued against him.
