Tompolo denies hailing 2023 election
Ex-commander of Niger Delta agitators and owner of Tantita Security Services Nigeria Ltd (SSNL), Chief Government Ekpemupolo, aka Tompolo, has denied hailing the outcome of the 2023 general election
Tompolo, whose company was awarded surveillance contract on crude oil pipeline, said the viral video claiming to be him is fake.
A statement, yesterday, by the media consultant to Tompolo, Dr. Paul Bebenimibo, said the viral video was a smear attempt on the person of Tompolo.
He said: “The attention of High Chief Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo, has been drawn to a viral video on the 2023 general election, where some online media quoted him to have hailed the outcome of the election.
“For the avoidance of doubt, Tompolo did not do any video of sort. Tompolo has not said anything on the outcome of the presidential election. He is not an enemy to any of the presidential candidates and the governorship candidates. He is a friend to all. And so, he has not asked anyone to use his name to campaign for any of the candidates.
“The general public should beware of characters that are out there to smear his name.”
