Adibe Emenyonu in Benin City
After months of hide and seek, former militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo, has fled to Libya.
The current development was disclosed by the Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force, JNDLF, on Monday to journalists.
The group, which threatened last week to test six missiles in the Niger Delta states, beginning from tomorrow, said: “The military can’t locate Tompolo but we have identified where he is now.”
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, made the claim in a statement.
“Presently, Tompolo is in Libya and we’ll get him dead or alive for betraying us in supporting the Federal Government against us,” it disclosed.
According to the statement, “Nigerian military has weak intelligence gathering mechanism hence they could not identify our modus oparandi. Nigerian military is only good in carrying AK47 to harass innocent people and raping young girls and women.”
