UPDATE: Ex-Militant Leader Tompolo, Speaks On Joining APC & Sets The Record Straight, Ahead Of 2019 Elections!!!
NIGERIA. Former Militant Leader, Chief Government Ekpemupolo, better known as Tompolo, has denied rumours that he has joined the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Speaking to Journalists through his Media Adviser, Paul Bebenimibo, Tompolo described the report as untrue. He said: “I am not a Politician. How can one who does not belong to a political party, defect from one political party to another?”
“Tompolo is not a Politician. He is just a Political Activist. He does not belong to any political party please”, Bebenimibo said.
Recall, that last month, Tompolo reportedly joined key Leaders of various camps of ex-Agitators in the Niger Delta, to pledge to work with the Federal Government, to ensure peace and stability in the region.
The other Leaders that met with the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta and Co-ordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Professor Charles Dokubo, in Lagos, included: Chief Bibopre Ajube, aka General Shoot-at-Sight; Victor Ben, alias Boyloaf; and High Royal Highness, Ateke Tom, among others.
