Egbesu Priest, Apostle Bodmas Kemepadei, has called on the immediate past President of the National Association of Itsekiri Graduates and Leader, Edema Oritsetimeyin, to be wary of making inflammatory comments against Chief Government Ekpemupolo, a.k.a Tompolo over the surveillance contract.
This came as two groups in Edo State, Safe Edo Land and 3rd Phase of Amnesty Group have commended President Muhammadu Buhari for giving the pipelines surveillance contract to Tompolo.
Kemepadei gave the warning in a statement, yesterday, in Warri in response to a recent newspaper publication credited to Oritsetimeyin on the surveillance contract.
The Egbesu Priest said: “Let me react to your misleading, demeaning and misconstrued sponsored reports trending in some national dailies.
“Oritsetimeyin statements are similar to that of someone who had wandered very far from home, exhibiting traits of frustration, who should be called to order for unscrupulous attempt to ignite an ethnic crisis.
“For the records, there is no public record of Tompolo issuing any statement linking the Olu of Warri to any pipeline surveillance job, why then the baseless attempt to drag Tompolo’s name into an unnecessary quarrel.”
The Egbesu Priest called on all companies handling this surveillance job to emulate the kind gesture of Tompolo and extend their hands to youths, women and leaders of the Niger Delta.
