Ex-militant, Tompolo’s father dies in Warri


Father of former militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo aka Tompolo, Chief Thomas Ekpemupolo, has died. Family sources say the octogenarian died on Wednesday morning September 7th at a private clinic in Warri, Delta State after a brief illness. Tompolo is currently in hiding as he has been declared wanted by the Police for his alleged involvement in fraudulent activities in the last administration.

The former militant leader had in an open letter sent to President Buhari, accused the military of brutalizing his Father during one of their operations in th Niger Delta

“That same day, the military went to Kurutie Town in search of my 84 years old father and brutalized him. We managed to rescue him to Warri and hospitalized him. Sadly, one of his lower limbs was amputated two weeks ago. From the doctor’s report, it will be a thing of miracle if he survives this incident. Is this 84 years old man also a member of the Niger Delta Avengers, that he was brutalised to the point of death?”
