Oil-producing communities in Edo seek inclusion in Tompolo’s pipeline contract

Oil-producing communities in Edo state have asked Government Ekpemupolo, better known as Tompolo, to involve them in the multi-million dollar pipeline surveillance contract he recently secured.

The communities, under the aegis of Combine Force Blasters (CFB), made the call in a statement issued on Sunday.

Tompolo recently secured a pipeline surveillance contract reportedly worth over N48 Billion annually, much to the chagrin of many Nigerians. Tompolo is the former leader of the notorious militant group, Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND)-a group responsible for countless abductions, violence and guerilla activities in the Niger Delta region.
