Chief Government Ekpemukpolo a.k.a Tompolo, former Niger Delta militant leader, has gone into hiding in the creeks of Bayelsa State for fear of arrest after being invited by the Economic and Financial crimes Commission (EFCC). Nigeria Standard reports that "There, he is being attended to by his coterie of militant boys, shielding him away from any eventual attack, which may possibly lead to his arrest."
THE SUMMARY recalls that the EFCC had earlier this week given Tompolo one week to report at its head office annex on Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, Lagos, or risk being declared wanted. The EFCC had in a letter said the commission is investigating Tompolo for unclear dealings involving the sale of parcels of land worth about 13 billion naira to the Federal Government under the last administration. Tompolo is expected to appear at the EFCC training room on Thursday, December 17.
