Federal Government Seizes Property Of Ex-Militant Leader Tompolo

Former militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo, also known as Tompolo has lost some of his assets to the Federal Government, temporarily, over his evasion of the court to answer fraud charges.

The Court of Appeal sitting in Lagos today dismissed an appeal filed by him, seeking to set aside the decision of the Federal High Court, Lagos which empowered the EFCC to attach all the properties belonging to the ex-militant.

In a unanimous judgment, the Court of Appeal held that Tompolo cannot be heard complaining that his properties are attached by the lower Court, when he has not come to answer to the summons against him.

The court held that the option available to Tompolo is to appear before the Federal High Court to apply for the order to be discharged, instead of filing the Appeal.
The Court of Appeal was of the view that his private right of property has not been breached by the said order.
