…Says those behind such video are the real enemies of Nigeria
By Binebai Princewill
A revered Ijaw religious group under the aegis of Egbesu Brotherhood (EB) has condemned those behind the move of a certain trending video on social media platforms that the revered Niger Delta leader is beating drums of War against the Nigerian Government, describing it as the highest level of falsehood and from the pit of hell.
The Egbesu Brotherhood made the disclaimer earlier today via a statement signed by deputy Governor of the group, Comrade Ellington Bakumor, a copy of which was sent to The Liberator Newspapers.
While debunking the viral video, the Egbesu priest stressed that those behind the video are not only enemies of Tompolo, Ijaw nation but real enemies of Nigeria, adding that it will never be well with those behind such act.
Bakumor continued that Tompolo do not have any Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any other social media account.
He particularly noted that the said video was doctored as Tompolo was only celebrating his supreme court judgement of 6 (six ) years freedom and not in anyway intending to beat any drum of war.
Comr. Bakumor had warned all those behind such sinister move to repent immediately before the day of reckoning comes as Tompolo has nothing to do with the #Endsars protest.
The statement reads in full below “
“It has come to our notice that there’s a fake news or rather a propaganda flying around that our leadeR , High Chief Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo has been trending on twitter , and other social media platform for the past few days .
These war mongers who were busy pushing for the country to burnt down seemed to be in jubilant mode that a new video which surfaced of him dancing in a crowd of followers was a rehearsal to declare war on Nigeria. This is absolutely not True , As he was only celebrating his Appeal Court victory and had nothing to do with war, that must have just been a coincidence
“They are suddenly looking for who will have the war chest to join a war they wanted without any plan.
“We are calling on the general public to note that Tompolo is not out for war , he was simply thanking the Deities of Ijaw land for his court victory and also praying for the peace of Ijaw nation, the Niger delta and Nigeria at large , TomPolo also doesn’t run a social media account , he’s neither on facebook , Twitter or Instagram, he doesn’t even have a personal email address . Hence we urge those using his picture for any form of social media or protest to stop while we rumor and war mongers to embrace peace and dialogue and not use the face of our leader for their wicked agenda or propaganda , even as I call on Genuine protesters to suspend protests for now as criminal elements have infiltrated the ranks to wreck havoc , which defeats the purpose of the protest, we should be able to conduct ourselves in a civilized manner, I also want to use this medium to advice delta state Youths to please Obey the curfew Order of his Excellency Dr Ifeanyi Okowa , whilst restrategizing on a more peaceful approach in addressing our concerns to the Government.”
