Nigerians On Twitter React To Tompolo’s Reappearance

Published

on

There have been reactions to the reappearance of ex-Niger Delta militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo popular as Tompolo.

Tompolo is currently trending on Twitter with people analysing his return.

Recall that Tompolo led the disbanded Movement for Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND), but went into hiding after President Muhammadu Buhari was sworn-in in 2015.

A year later, he was declared wanted by the government for ignoring two bench warrants issued against him by the  Federal High Court in Lagos, where he was charged with N45.9bn fraud.

Though the charges against Global West Vessel Specialist Limited, a company linked to him were dismissed three years after, he remained under the radar.

On Monday, October 19, he made an appearance at the Egbesu Shrine in his Oporoza country home in Gbaramatu, Delta State.

He was filmed singing and dancing to an Ijaw song with his kinsmen while dressed in traditional outfits.

Nigerians have taken to Twitter to ask if Tompolo’s sudden appearance is a good sign.
