The Inspector General of Police, Mr Solomon Arase, has assured that the Niger Delta militant leader, Mr Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo, wanted for allegation of diversion of public funds by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), was being trailed by the police.
A Federal High Court in Lagos had issued a warrant of arrest against him a couple of weeks ago following an order sought by EFCC to get the accused person to face justice.
Tompolo, who is facing 40-count charge, is being tried alongside the ex-Director General of Nigeria Maritime Safety Agency, Mr Patrick Akpobolokemi, in connection with the alleged diversion of a sum of N45.9 billion for the execution of contracts.
Speaking during a tour of the Ekiti Command on Friday, Arase said: “We are looking for Tompolo and my men are on his trail. We will arrest him anywhere we sight him.”
