Call For Revocation Of Olu’s N138.7 Billion Pipeline Contract -Ozobo Tells Ex-militants Troubling Tompolo



By Abdullahi Alhassan, Kaduna

Aggrieved Niger Delta rights and environmental activist, Comrade Ozobo Austin has told ex-militant leaders fighting High Chief Government Oweizide Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo to call for the revocation of Olu of Warri N138.7 Billion Pipeline Surveillance Contract if they are not envious of his success and global relevance.

This is according to a statement which he signed by himself and a copy was sent to newsmen on Friday.

Ozobo said the call to split or stop the renewal of Tompolo’s Tantita Security Services Limited was borne out of ignorance, envy and greed, adding that up till now ex-militant leaders troubling Tompolo had not seen the need to call for the revocation or splitting of Olu’s N138.7 security contract in Niger Delta.

The activist maintained that Tompolo whose efforts brought the award of the Niger Delta Pipeline Surveillance Contract merits the N138.7 security contract and not the N4 billion monthly contract.

He said Niger Delta ex-militants who are benefiting from Tompolo’s benevolence are expected to demand the award of Olu’s N138.7 security contract to Tompolo if they are not ingrates.

The statement reads, “Tompolo is shortchanged in the award of the security contract; it is not Tompolo that is supposed to be given the smaller one. He deserves the best of the security contract. So l expect the so-called ex-militants to speak for it if they are not being blindfolded by envy and drunk with alcohol.

“Olu of Warri is not a stakeholder in the Niger Delta struggle, and Niger Delta so-called ex-militants are not disturbed that such a person is given a lion’s share of what they have acclaimed to have fought for. This is madness, a sign of ignorance and the act of drunkness with alcohol. If they are not disturbed by this great injustice, then it is evil for them to challenge Tompolo who is still facing the same injustice,” he added.

He said no genuine ex-agitator in Niger Delta would fight against Tompolo owing to the benevolence and coverage they enjoyed from him.

Ozobo warned Niger Delta militants not to be blinded by greed, and should not allow themselves to be incited by enemies against their brother Tompolo because of daily bread.
