Tompolo Turns Religious, Says Jehovah God will Protect him

Former Niger Delta militant, Government Ekpemupolo aka Tompolo has denied reports that he threatened to blow up oil installations in the Niger Delta unless the law enforcement authorities back off from looking for him in the creeks.

In a statement signed by his media aide, Paul Bebenimibo, Tompolo said the threat was from those who were trying to kill him but that Jehovah God would protect him.

The statement reads:

It has come to our notice that some mischief makers have made a publication in the name of High Chief Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo, which is trending in the social media, that he has given few days to President Muhammedu Buhari to withdrew military from the Niger Delta region, otherwise he is going to blow up oil pipelines.

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 discretionally continue to pursue his course legally.

“It is his 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, 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.”
