Government Ekpemupolo alias Tompolo has dissociated himself from the wanton attacks on oil installations in the Warri area of Delta state which took place on Friday, 15 January.

Tompolo, who condemned the attacks did not rule out connection between the destruction and the arrest warrant issued by a Federal High Court in Lagos.

“I am not responsible for the attack and I condemn it as a dastardly act. I am aware that some persons might want to destroy oil installations and link it with me that was why I said before time that I have nothing to do with it.

“I could not have gone ahead to carry out such action knowing that every finger will be pointed at me because of my case with the Federal Government,” he added.

Tompolo, who spoke through Mr. Paul Bebenimibo, his media aide, urged those who carried out the attacks to change their ways.

He said he was willing to help the Federal Government and relevant security operatives fish out the masterminds of the attacks and bring them to book.

“I have heard about the incident and I was made to understand that it took place on Thursday night. Well, I am sure this is what President Buhari is looking for. He should allow the people of the Niger Delta Region to know peace, otherwise he will not know peace as well,” Tompolo said
