Is Tompolo dead? Here is what you need to know as rumours of his alleged death trend on various social media platforms.
There has been a trending story that Tompolo has been shot dead on various social media and on some online news platforms.
High Chief Government Ekpemupolo, also known as Tompolo, was a former freedom fighter in the Niger Delta. He has called claims that he was killed during the People Democratic Party (PDP) primaries for the House of Assembly and Senate in Ogbia, Bayelsa State, as pranks.
This was contained in an official statement issued by Paul Bebenimibo, media adviser to Tompolo.
According to Bebenimibo, the news has nothing to do with High Chief Tompolo, who is “well and strong.”
He said, “High Chief Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo, has been drawn to an online rumor that one Tompolo was assassinated in Ogbia during the Peoples Democratic Party primaries for the House of Representatives and Senate.”
For the avoidance of doubt, this story has nothing to do with Ekpemupolo, aka Tompolo, High Chief of Government. By God’s goodness, he is healthy, strong, and doing well.
“The general population should be aware that High Chief Government Ekpemupolo is a popular leader who will continue to speak for the people.” He is in good spirits, praying to God Almighty to assist our magnificent country in successfully transitioning to a new government in 2023.
“He prays for the country’s peace and stability, and he is always eager to pay his fair share for the country’s social, economic, and other development.”
“He asked the general public to dismiss the false online death news.”
