Tompolo vows not to apologise to Niger Delta Avengers

Tompolo vows not to apologise
to Niger Delta Avengers

– Tompolo says he will not bend to the
request of Niger Delta Avengers and
– He insists some APC member are aware
of the attackers
– The Ijaw Youths Council backed Tompolo
on his decision
Government Ekpemupolo popularly known as
Tompolo has vowed that he will not issue
any apology to the Niger Delta Avengers a
new militant group.
Tompolo in an open letter to President
Muhammadu Buhari had denied that he was
responsible for pipeline bombings in the
Niger Delta region. The former militant said
he was not a member of Niger Delta
Avengers, the group that claimed
responsibility for the bombing.
The militant group issued a three-day
ultimatum asking Tompolo to apologise for
denouncing the group or it will bomb a major
pipeline. The threat was carried out on
Friday, May 7 when Chevron’s platform
linking Warri and Kaduna refineries was
Vanguard reports that Tompolo who is
wanted by the Economic and Financial
Crimes Commission spoke through Mr. Paul
Bebenimibo who is his media consultant.
“He (Tompolo) will not apologize to them
(Niger Delta Avengers).”
“If not for his present issues with the Federal
Government, he would have gone after them
and exposed them because they seem to make
things difficult for him, as the government is
pointing fingers at him, but he cannot do
anything in his present situation,” Bebenimibo
He claimed that two prominent Itsekiri and
Ijaw activists, both stalwarts of the All
Progressives Congress “are only looking for
attention from the government, so they use the
happenings to seek relevance from the
government, they may be behind these guys.”
Meanwhile, the Ijaw Youths Council threw its
weight behind Tompolo and commended him
for not apologising to the group.
“The Ijaw Youth Council does not see the
justification in the Niger Delta Avengers
embarking on destruction of oil facilities
because Tompolo denounced the group. I
think Tompolo did the proper thing by coming
out to inform the entire world that he was not
part of the Niger Delta Avengers when there
were insinuations to the effect that he was
behind them.”
“As with other cases of attack on oil facilities,
the Niger Delta environment and people are the
ultimate victim and would suffer from these
latest attacks. The IYC believe that irrespective
of the grievances, there are better ways of
expressing them rather than contributing to the
further destruction of the already massively
degraded Niger Delta environment.”
On the fresh directive by President
Muhammadu Buhari to security agencies to
crush the militants, the group said: “While
the IYC do not support the attacks on oil
facilities, we hasten to add that it should not
be used as a justification to attack innocent
Niger Delta communities
“The security agencies should go after the real
culprits and not innocent communities and
people in the Niger Delta region. From our
experience, the security personnel in a bid to
impress their superiors and justify the huge
amount of money budgeted for the purpose
always attack innocent communities and
“This must not be allowed to happen this time
around. We would also advise the federal
government to be prompt in directing security
agencies to deal with insurgent groups all
over the country, including the Fulani
herdsmen, who have been killing innocent
Nigerians just like they have just directed in
respect of the Niger Delta Avengers.

been asked to report to the Abuja
headquarters of the Economic and Financial
Crimes Commission (EFCC) over the alleged
N23.29billion bribe.
Former minister of petroleum resources, Mrs

According to reports by Nation newspaper,
two Resident Electoral Commissioners
(RECs), 10 directors and an administrative
officer have been quizzed by EFCC over the
The RECs are Gesila Khan who allegedly
collecting N185, 842,000 and Austen Okojie

Aside facing EFCC probe, the INEC officials
will appear on Wednesday, May 11 before
the senior staff disciplinary committee
chaired by a National Commissioner,
Mustapha Lecky.
The Nation also reported that more RECs
and INEC officials may face the panel based
on EFCC’s investigation as it gave a full
break down of how the N23.29billion bribe
was distributed.
REC Gesil Khan allegedly collected N185,
842,000 out of a N681million bribe; Fidelia
Omoile( Electoral Officer in Isoko-South
Local Government Area of Delta State)—

EFCC arrests, grills 4 former ministers
“The Secretary of INEC, Mrs. Augusta Ogakwu,
has sent a letter of invitation to the affected
RECs and Administrative Secretary.
“Apart from the confidential report of the
EFCC, I think INEC may revisit the report of a
committee sent to Rivers and Akwa Ibom
during the 2015 poll when there were issues in
the two states.
“So far, EFCC has not accused Okojie of
involvement in the bribery but I think he is
being invited to face the disciplinary panel on
the basis of the report of the committee which
looked into issues in Akwa Ibom during the
2015 poll when he was the REC in the state.”
“Although the chairman of the disciplinary
committee is on a medical trip abroad, the
INEC management may find a way out.”

convicts and upheld the judgment of the
court below.
Justice Ibrahim Buba of the Federal High
Court in Lagos, originally handed down the
verdict on September 30, 2014 after the
Lagos State Government, through the
Ministry of Justice, successfully prosecuted
the terrorists before the court.
Hundreds of Boko Hara terrorists have been
rounded up recently
The State Government had filed charges

were charged under inapplicable laws, and

convicted and sentenced for a count with
which he was not charged.
While the Court of Appeal agreed that one of
the convicts was wrongly convicted under a
count with which he was not charged, the
Court however affirmed the judgment of
Justice Buba, which convicted and
sentenced the three terrorists to 25 years
