Ex-Niger Delta militants leader Tompolo has denied allegations that he is one of the sponsors of the militant group, the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA).
Tompolo, who described the allegations ‘voodoo’, made this denial on Monday, August 8, through a press statement issued by his spokesman, Paul Bebenimibo.
“My initial decision was to ignore the said report as a result of the source and the bogus nature of the story; however, in order to set the records straight, I decided to write to dissociate my boss and myself from that wicked and malicious report.”
It added: “I wish to advise the Nigerian government to look for better ways to resolve the Niger Delta problem, and not to continue to compound the issue by relaying on voodoo means to resolve the issue, like this particular report which could be likened to a voodoo report.
According to NAIJ.com, a splinter group of the NDA, which calls itself the Reformed Niger Delta Avengers (RNDA), had named former President Goodluck Jonathan, Tompolo, Bebenimibo, Patrick Akpobolokemi and other prominent Niger Delta personalities as sponsors of the Avengers that had caused havoc on the country’s oil production.
