Barely a month into operations as defender of the Niger Delta crude oil from oil thieves, Government Oweizide Ekpemupolo, popularly known as Tompolo is blowing hot and tough on those milking the country’s resources at the expense of the poor masses.

You will recall that the government of Nigeria recently contracted the human rights activist and his team to protect oil pipelines running across the Niger Delta to the tune of over Four Billion Naira monthly! And it’s obvious that the contract is paying off already.

Besides the dismantling of illegal refineries and arrest of suspects, Tompolo and his team have also discovered illegal pipelines used in diverting our oil. And according to him, oil theft is being carried out by officials of the military, navy, police and even the civil defense corp! And without a doubt, these security officials will be working for people in both the public and private sectors as well as government.

What do you think…should Tompolo mention names of those stealing our oil?
