Metro Rights Group: Tompolo's Refusal To Honour EFCC's Invitation Is Not An Offence

Foundation for Human Rights and Anti-Corruption Crusade, FHRACC said that ex-militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo, aka Tompolo, did not flout any law by not honouring the recent invitation of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

FHRACC, in a statement by its national president, Alaowei Cleric and obtained by Vanguard, he said Tompolo’s reason that he was already in court with the commission was tenable, adding, “The subsequent arraignment of Tompolo over some trumped-up charges is a political witch-hunt by agents of the Federal Government. The action of the anti-graft agency can be best described as a ploy to use the government’s institutions to carry out political execution of their perceived enemies.


“In critical assessment of the EFCC’s motives in carrying out this provocative act, we can infer that the commission has already convicted its assailant without trial, a practice not known in our jurisprudence.

“The EFCC, as a responsible anti-graft agency, should rather ensure that justice is done in any given case.”
