Police on Tompolo’s trail – Arase

The Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, on Friday said his men are on the trail of ex-Niger Delta militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo alias Tompolo following the issuance of a warrant for his arrest by a Federal High Court in Lagos.

“We are looking for Tompolo and my men are on his trail. We will arrest him anywhere we see him,” Arase told reporters in Ado Ekiti.

Tompolo was slammed with a 40-count charge bordering on money laundering and fraud by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The ex-militant chief has refused to heed EFCC’s summons for interrogation.

He also failed to appear before the court prompting the warrant of arrest.

He has since been declared wanted by the EFCC.
