Tompolo

The anti-graft agency declared Tompolo wanted over alleged diversion a sum of N45.9 billion in the execution of contracts. He had shunned several court orders to appear and face the charges brought against.

A federal High Court in Lagos last week issued a warrant of arrest against him, being an order sought by EFCC to get the accused person to face justice.

Tompolo and the ex-Director General of Nigeria Maritime Safety Agency (NIMASA), Mr Patrick Akpobolokemi are facing a 40-count charge over alleged diversion of pubic funds.

“We are looking for Tompolo and my men are on his trail.  We will arrest him anywhere we sight him”, Arase said during a tour of the Ekiti Command today, February 12.

Also speaking on the alleged warrant of arrest issued against the embattled secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti , Dr Tope Aluko, Arase said the Police is yet to be served with any warrantb regarding that, noting that his men would swing into action when the Commission is served.
