We’ll Arrest Tompolo Anywhere We Sight Him – Arase

Tompolo-Government-EkpemupoloThe Inspector General of Police, IGP Solomon Arase, yesterday said that the police was on the trail of former militant leader, High Chief Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo, following the issuance of a warrant for his arrest by Justice Buba Ibrahim of Federal High Court, Lagos.
“We are looking for Tompolo and my men are on his trail. We will arrest him anywhere we sight him”, Arase told reporters in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, where he was on a tour of the State Police Command.
Tompolo was slammed with a 40-count charge bordering on money laundering and fraud by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) but has gone underground.
He also failed to appear before the court, prompting the warrant of arrest.
He has since been declared wanted by the EFCC.
The former militant, who said he would appear before the court when the time is right, is standing trial alongside his co-accused, the immediate past Director General of the Nigeria Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Patrick Akpobolokemi.
