Former freedom Fighter, High Chief Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo has reacted to news making waves in the online media that a certain Tompolo was killed in Ogbia Bayelsa State during the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) House of Assembly and Senate primaries describing it as malicious and urged the public to disregard it.

Tompolo’s reaction was contained in a statement issued by media Adviser to Tompolo Dr Paul Bebenimibo, and made available to the Liberator Newspaper worldwide on Tuesday.

Bebenimibo noted that the purported story has nothing to do with High Chief Tompolo, saying that the former freedom Fighter is “hale and hearty” and in good spirit.

He hinted that Tompolo is praying for peace in the country as it prepares to undergo political transition in 2023 and willing to contribute in many ways to the growth, unity and progress of Nigeria.

He said “The attention of High Chief Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo has been drawn to an online report that one Tompolo was killed in Ogbia during the Peoples Democratic Party primaries for House of Reps and Senate.”

“For the avoidance of doubt, this story has nothing to do with High Chief Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo. He is hale, hearty and doning well by God’s grace. “

“The general public should know that High Chief Government Ekpemupolo is a leader of the masses and will continue to speak for the masses. He is in high spirit, hoping that God Almighty will help our great country to transit successfully to another government come 2023.”

“He is praying for peace and stability of this country and is always willing to contribute his own quota  to the development of this country socially, economically and otherwise.”

“He urged the general public to disregard the malicious online report of his death.”
