Tompolo denies receiving N1bn monthly from NIMASA

Ex-militant leader, Government Ekpomupolo, also known as ‘Tompolo’ has denied allegations made against him by the pioneer chairman of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) Alhaji Tijani Ramalan, that he was paid N1.5billion monthly for the protection of Nigeria’s waterways.

A statement by his media aide, Comrade Paul Bebenimibo, described Ramalan as an attention seeker.

Tompolo said Ramalan made very wild, unsubstantiated allegations against his person, asking the accuser to provide proof to buttress his claim.

“Without any further stress, it is obvious that the said Ramalan is merely seeking an undue attention”, he said.

“I make bold to say that Ramalan who claims to be the pioneer chairman of NIMASA is not just economical with the truth but his outburst is an exhibition of ignorance and mischief which should be ignored by all”, he added.

The statement said “Ramalan’s contraption of any sum being paid to me is, therefore, rubbish, malicious, unsubstantiated and display of ignorance.

“I can only pity such a man whose intention is perhaps to rubbish my name and needlessly drag me into the fray of disputes at a time the new government of President Muhammadu Buhari is barely one week in office.”

Tompolo added that the intention of Ramalan was to generally misled and probably position himself for a comeback to NIMASA.
