Leader of the defunct Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND), Chief Government Ekpemupolo aka Tompolo, whose warrant of arrest has been served by a federal high court for failing to appear before it to answer charges bothering on the embezzlement of N34bn, in an open letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, revealed why he refused to show up in court. Drawing from the letter, INFORMATION NIGERIA has put together the reasons Tompolo put forth for failing to appear in court….
– According to him, he knows nothing about the N34 billion Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is talking about.
– It is not possible to have access to the money in question as he isn’t a signatory to any of the companies mentioned in the said N34 billion case.
– He claims the charges are false as they are only a revenge by the EFCC lawyer, Festus Keyamo because he (Tompolo) refused to buy some choice property worth billions of naira from him, when he approached him some years.
– That the EFCC lawyer, Festus Keyamo is not qualified to prosecute him because of their soured history.
Are these enough reasons to shun the court???
