Security operatives hunting for the militants who bombed oil pipelines in Delta State have invaded the riverine Bolowoh community in Ondo State in search of a former commander of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND), Bibopre Ajube a.k.a Shoot-At-Sight.

A report this morning in Vanguard said that the security agents were hunting for the former militant leader, a partner of former General Officer Commanding (GOC) of MEND, High Chief Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo.

“The details were still sketchy, yesterday, as the JTF in the Niger Delta was keeping its current operation in Ondo State secret,” the report said.

It quoted an unnamed source as saying: “Ajube was not at home when they stormed his home. Soldiers narrowly missed arresting him, he escaped before they could seize him. They seemed to be targeting people close to Tompolo and have made more arrests. Ajube is one of the top Tompolo generals that accepted amnesty.

“We do not have the identities of the people they have arrested so far and the purpose of the army invasion.”
