Tompolo goes into hiding as Court orders his arrest

86

Tompolo rejected all insinuation about the land deal as fraudulent and shifted the bulk to former President Goodluck Jonathan for clarification if need be.

Tompolo

Former Niger Delta militant, Mr. Government ‘Tompolo” Ekpemupolo has reportedly gone into hiding to evade arrest by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Mr. Tompolo is reportedly hiding in the hard-to-navigate Niger Delta creeks.

Mr. Tompolo was on December 10th, 2015 invited for questioning by the EFCC but had refused to honor their invitation on the pretext that he was in court against the anti-corruption agency.

However, a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has issued a warrant for the arrest of Tompolo in connection to a multi-billion naira fraud involving land contracts for the construction of a Nigerian Maritime University (NMU).

In the meantime, though, Tompolo’s bank accounts have been frozen by the EFCC.

Also, two companies linked to Tompolo, Mieka Divers Ltd and Global West Vessel Specialists Nigeria Ltd had their accounts frozen by the EFCC because of their use in fraudulent exchanges.

Tompolo is expected to make clarifications about the illicit sale of N13 billion in lands from him to the Federal Government. 

Elombah.com gathered that the Federal Government wanted to construct the Nigerian Maritime University (NMU) but that collaborators with Tompolo had diverted the funds through the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).

Rejecting all insinuation about the land deal as fraudulent, he asked the EFCC to contact former President Goodluck Jonathan for clarification.
