Former Niger Delta militant leader, Chief Government Ekpemukpolo a.k.a Tompolo, has gone into hiding in thecreeks of Bayelsa State for fear of arrest after being summoned by the Economic and Financial crimes Commission (EFCC), a report said.
“There, he is being attended to by his coterie of militant boys, shielding him away from any eventual attack, which may possibly lead to his arrest,” reports Nigeria Standard.
It would be recalled that the EFCC had earlier this week given Tompolo one week to report at its head office annex on Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, Lagos, or risk being declared wanted.
A letter from EFCC said the commission is investigating Tompolo for unclear dealings involving the sale of parcels of land worth about 13 billion Naira to the Federal Government under the last administration.
Tompolo is expected to appear at the EFCC training room on Thursday, December 17.
A similar invitation was extended to Tompolo in November by the Head of Operations at the EFCC, Iliasu Kwabai, but he failed to appear and no correspondence was received from him.
