The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has invited former Niger Delta warlord, Chief Government Ekpemupolo (aka Tompolo) over a N13 billion land sale to the Federal Government of Nigeria, under former President Goodluck Jonathan.
Channels TV reported that Tompolo was given one week to appear before the commission or he will be declared wanted. He risks being declared wanted, if he failed to show up, EFCC said.
In a letter from the EFCC, the Commission says it is investigating Tompolo for unclear dealings involving the sale of parcels of land worth about 13 billion naira to the Federal government under the last administration.
He is expected to appear at the EFCC training room on Thursday, December 17.
A similar invitation was extended to Tompolo in November by the Head of Operations at the EFCC, Iliasu Kwabai but he failed to appear and no correspondence was received from him.
The land deal was approved by the Federal government for NIMASA.
