Biafra militant group rejects Tompolo’s recruitment offer

There are suggestions that a suspected militants group, Biafra Nations League (BnL), operating in the fringes of Bakassi creeks, may have rejected offers from Government Ekpemukpolo, better known as Tompolo, to be recruited to join forces with him to ‘secure’ Nigeria’s massive oil pipelines.

Media reports say Tompolo, a Niger Delta warlord, has been given a pipeline security contract by the federal government to secure the pipelines which have incessantly been vandalised thereby leading to wanton economic sabotage.

According to sources, Bakassi chapter leader of BnL, one Ita Bassey is said to have confirmed Tompolo’s approaches.

A member of Black Marine, believed to be an arm of BnL, is said to have brought the report.

Bassey is quoted to have explained why they rejected the offers, saying BnL will not be used by Tompolo to make money.
