Former MEND Commander, Government Ekpemupolo, also known as Tompolo, who has been declared wanted by the federal government, has fled to Libya, the Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force, JNDLF, alleged on Monday.
This was contained in a statement issued by General Akotebe Darikoro, Commander, General Duties, General Torunanaowei Latei, Creeks Network Coordinator, General Agbakakuro Owei-Tauro, Pipelines Bleeding Expert and General Pulokiri Ebiladei, Intelligence Bureau of JNDLF.
The group, which had threatened to launch six missiles in the Niger Delta beginning from tomorrow, stated that, “The Military can’t locate Tompolo but we have identified where he is now.”
“Presently, Tompolo is in Libya and we’ll get him dead or alive for betraying us in supporting the federal government against us.
“Nigerian Military has weak intelligence gathering mechanism hence they could not identify our modu oparandi. Nigerian military is only good in carrying AK47 to harass innocent people and raping young girls and women.”
