Former militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo, better known as Tompolo has embarked on fasting and prayers in his hideout for God’s intervention in his current travails with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The anti-graft commission had charged Tompolo and nine others with an alleged fraud of N45.9bn before Justice Buba.

In January 2016, a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos issued a bench warrant for his arrest over fraud charges, even as the court ordered the confiscation of some of his assets in Warri and other parts of Delta State.
The country’s anti-graft agency and the police also declared Tompolo wanted even as he went underground.
However, reports have it that the ex-militant leader, an evangelist and adherent of the Amasiekumor deity of Gbaramatu Kingdom, Delta State, has gone spiritual.
On Monday, a source close to the polity said: “Yes, he has gone into fasting and prayers because he knows that it is only God and not any human being that can deliver him from his present problems, planned by his enemies to undo him.”
Also corroborating with the source, the Media Adviser and Consultant to Tompolo, Mr. Paul Bebenimibo, said:
“When one is in travail, which is his case, you will take your case to God and that is what he has done.
“I can confirm to you that Tompolo is presently on fasting and prayers to God so that He will intervene because he knows that He is a God of justice and will fight for him because he is innocent,” he said.
