In a statement which he released January 15th, embattled former Niger Delta militant, Government Ekpemupolo aka Tompolo said that President Buhari will know no peace if the Niger Delta region does not know peace. He said this while distancing himself from the recent incidents of pipelines being blown up in Delta state. Many believe the militants are protesting the court order granted by an Abuja judge for his arrest.
“Well, I am sure this is what President Buhari is looking for. He should allow the people of the Niger Delta Region to know peace, otherwise he will not know peace as well,” Tompolo said in the last paragraph of his statement issued by Paul Bebenimibo, his media aide.
