Niger Delta militants have vowed to chase away oil companies from the region should the Federal Government order another invasion of Tompolo’s community.
Operatives of the Joint Task Force code-named, Operation Delta Safe, for the second time in two weeks, had reportedly raided Oporoza, the traditional headquarters of the Gbaramatu people and hometown of a popular militant, Chief Government Ekpemupolo alias Tompolo, on Saturday.
The leader of Niger Delta Peoples Democratic Front, ‘General’ Playboy, also cautioned that they (militants) would attack three central mosques in the region should soldiers raid Tompolo’s residence again.
Playboy, in his statement on Saturday, said it was shocking that soldiers could invade Tompolo’s community after elders and stakeholders of the Niger Delta met with President Muhammadu Buhari on the way forward for the region.
He said, “If it is true that his (Tompolo) house was raided, then President Buhari must stop it. If he does not stop, what we will do is to chase away oil companies in our land. We cannot be feeding Nigeria and at the same time be humiliated by Nigeria.”
