Nigeria: Tompolo Denies Endorsing Buhari

Following an earlier report that the one-time militant, Tompolo along with others endorsed the candidacy of Buhari for presidency, he has come out to deny this claim.

In a short statement, Tompolo dubunked the claim, saying he knew nothing about the endorsement signed by Ebikabowei Victor Ben, a.k.a. Boyloaf.

His statement which was released by his media adviser, Paul Bebenimibo read: “It must be pointed out that Tompolo has not been in touch with Boyloaf since 2015. Tompolo is not into endorsement politics. Tompolo is presently troubled with the way and manner his kinsmen in Gbaramatu kingdom are being harassed and intimidated by President Muhammadu Buhari’s military on a daily basis.

“This same military harassed, brutalised and killed his father, Chief Thomas Ekpemupolo, in 2015, and up till now President Buhari has not made any statement by way of apology to him. And so, what will be the reason for Tompolo to endorse him? To further kill his kinsmen? Tompolo has been in agony since 2015, as the present government is after him for unsubstantiated allegations of corruption.

“It is not true that Tompolo is part of those who are set to endorse President Buhari in Port Harcourt. Therefore, President Buhari and the general public should disregard the news as it is purely fake news.”
