The Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited has defended the pipeline surveillance contract given to militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo, better known as Tompolo.

Speaking on Tuesday, Malam Mele Kyari, CEO of NNPC, said the Government took the right decision to hire private contractors to man its oil pipeline network nationwide, adding that the government was not dealing directly with the former warlord; but it had signed a contract with a company in which Tompolo has interests

There has been controversy since news broke that Tompolo, who was declared wanted in the early days of the Buhari administration, had been given contracts worth billions by the same administration.
