Dokubo-Asari Clashes With Tompolo Over Pipeline Surveillance Contract

The relationship between leader of Niger-Delta Militant, Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo -Asari and the leader of defunct Movement for Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND), Government Ekpemupolo, popularly known as Tompolo, has hit the rock over the surveillance contract by the federal government.

In a footage accessed by Africa Investigative Magazine, the ex-militant leader faulted the federal government for awarding such contract to Ekpemupolo, alleging that Tompolo was never involved in genuine fight for Niger-Delta.

Dokubo-Asari expressed his displeasure over the contract the Federal Government awarded Tompolo, which covers some parts of Rivers state.

Hear him: “I cannot even compare myself to Tompolo, it is unimaginable that I will condescend to the level of Tompolo. Who is Tompolo, what is his antecedents, what is his name?

“Who is he, do not allow me open a can of worms, who is Tompolo, which Ijaw struggle is he fighting? He is fighting Itsekiri people calling it Ijaw struggle and Niger Delta struggle. Is he even involved in Ijaw struggle?

“Fighting war with Itsekiri, do not allow me to talk, he has never been involved in Ijaw struggle. Never. Gbaramatu versus Itsekiri, that is the war he is fighting. He is not even defending other Ijaw people who are fighting, Ogbe-Ijoh has been fighting with Aladja has Tompolo gone there before,” he said.

Recall that Tompolo, has recently reached out to Dokubo-Asari and another former ex-militant leader, Ateke Tom, now a king, in Rivers state, but it appears Dokubo-Asari and Tompolo have not been on the same page.
