In a statement released Monday, the militant group, which threatened last week to test six missiles in the restive Niger Delta region beginning today (Tuesday), said: “The Military can’t locate Tompolo but we have identified where he is now.”
The statement was signed by their leaders – General Akotebe Darikoro, Commander General Duties, General Torunanaowei Latei, Creeks Network Coordinator, General Agbakakuro Owei-Tauro, Pipelines Bleeding Expert and General Pulokiri Ebiladei, Intelligence Bureau of JNDLF, according to Vanguard.
“Presently, Tompolo is in Libya and we’ll get him dead or alive for betraying us in supporting the federal government against us,” the statement added.
Meanwhile, they could not resist having a go at the Nigerian Army, who have increased their presence in the region as a result of a new wave of pipeline vandalism mostly perpetrated by new militant group, The Niger Delta Avengers.
“Nigerian Military has weak intelligence gathering mechanism hence they could not identify our modu oparandi. Nigerian military is only good in carrying AK47 to harass innocent people and raping young girls and women.”
Tompolo was declared wanted by the authorities after failing to appear in court following charges of fraud levelled against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in January.
