JTF will pay for my father’s death – Tompolo


NIGER DELTA activist and founder of the defunct Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, MEND, Chief Government Ekpemupolo (aka Tompolo) yesterday vowed to make soldiers pay for the death of his father, Chief Thomas Osen Ekpemupolo, one year ago. Speaking on the first year anniversary of the death of the late Ekpemupolo, Tompolo said descendants of the late patriarch would not rest until the masterminds of his death are found and held accountable. Tompolo, who is on the run over alleged N13billion fraud, however said that the search for justice would be prosecuted through legal means. He said, “As we mourn and remember our late patriarch, we will seek justice to apprehend and hold accountable the very soldiers responsible for his murder so that he can finally rest in peace and we his descendants can be fulfilled. “I will also not be deterred by persecution and state act of terror against my person and communities in Ijaw land in the quest for the emancipation of our land and people,” he vowed. Nigerian Pilot recalls that
father of the former militant leader died from injuries he sustained when soldiers invaded Gbaramatu clan in Warri Southwest Local Government Area of Delta State in September 2016. The octogenarian, who was allegedly brutalised by rampaging soldiers, later died in a private hospital in Warri, after his limbs were amputated in a desperate bid to save his life. While using the incident as reference, Tompolo who is wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for alleged looting of NIMASA fund, lamented his ‘persecution.’ He said “I have been marked as state enemy number one by the President Muhammadu Buhari regime because of my natural and open association with my kinsman and former president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan.” Ekpemupolo also traced his ordeal to his support for Governor Seriake Dickson in the 2016 Bayelsa State gubernatorial election presumed as against the anointed APC candidate of the federal government, Chief Timipre Sylva.
