Norway sells warships, combat boats to ex-militant leader, Tompolo

In a shocking move, the Norwegian government has sold a fleet of its decommissioned, but still sophisticated, battleships and combat boats to a former Niger Delta militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo, who for years led a devastating insurgency against the Nigerian government in the oil-rich region, a Norwegian newspaper reported Saturday.

As a leader of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, Mr. Ekpemupolo, well known as Tompolo, confronted the Nigerian military, killing many and disrupting oil and gas production.

An amnesty deal announced by the Nigerian government, by former President Umaru Yar’adua, in 2009, ended the fighting.

Tompolo has since emerged a close ally of President Goodluck Jonathan’s government, winning luceative government contracts and becoming very rich.

But after giving up fighting, surrendering his arms, and leading his men to hand over their weapons, Dagbladet, the Norwegian newspaper, said Tompolo in 2012 received at least six decommissioned Norwegian battleships.

Among them were six fast-speed Hauk-class guided missile boats, now re-armed with new weapons.

The most recent hardware, according to the report, is the KNM Horten, a fast-attack craft now allegedly used for anti-piracy patrol in the Nigerian waters.

The report said the deal was implemented through a shell maritime Security Company based in the United Kingdom, CAS Global.

CAS Global was used to evade a requirement by Norway that arms dealers obtain export license from their country’s foreign affairs ministry, the report adds.

CAS Global has such licence.

The company, which has an office in Nigeria, could not be reached on Saturday. Calls to its general manager, were unsuccessful.

On its website, the company says, among other functions, that it is a risk management company with an international reach.

“We have significant skill sets and personnel in two key operational disciplines.  Within the Maritime Industry, we specialise in offshore support vessels & personnel, mainly, but not exclusively, for oil and gas multinationals.  We also work with multi-national shipping companies and consortiums to provide vessel escort services in high risk areas,” the company says.

Mr. Ekpemupolo runs Global West Vessel Service, which handles maritime security issues for the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA.

The maritime security issues are essentially anti-piracy, although Tompolo’s firm itself is also accused of piracy.

The newspaper’s report that Norway sold such military hardware to an individual with a history of violence, has angered the country’s lawmakers who are pressing for explanations.

According to Dagbladet, the government has defended the transaction.

The head of communications at the Norwegian State Department Frode Andersen, was quoted by the paper as saying that “As far as we can see, the export of KNM Horten has followed correct procedure and terms of export to Great Britain. The re-export from Great Britain to Nigeria is a question to be handled solely by British export control authorities.”

The Nigerian military could not be reached for comments too.

Since the Niger Delta militancy era  ended in 2009, Mr. Ekpemupolo hit the headlines again recently after allegedly ordering the arrest and beating of journalists in Delta State.

  • What is the National implication of this illegal action on our Navy.

  • endingNaija

    Asari Dokubo of the Niger Delta Volunteer Force, a close ally of MEND in creek, Niger Delta and South South terrorism used his mouth to say he will spill the blood of innocent Nigerians when his candidate President Jonathan is defeated in the 2015 elections. With the purchase of this new ship by a terrorist-Tompolo, we should be ready for a renewed terrorism from the South South Niger Delta Creeks when and after Goodluck Jonathan has been democratically defeated. This is simply FYI and FOI-For Our Information.

  • King Carlos

    My own argument is that Why would the government give so much money to private contractors like Tompolo to secure our waterways when such can be invested in strengthening a govt agency to carry out such tasks. Do we even have a coast guard? What about the navy and civil defense?

    • endingNaija

      The government does this because (i) Nigeria is a private property, (ii) Nigeria is privately owned, (iii) Nigerian borders are privately owned. So? You govt will hand over a private property to private companies. That these companies in the case of Tomopolo and others like Asari Dokubo are terrorist fronts does not matter. Nigeria is not a civilised country-this is what handing over our borders to terrorists and their companies tell you my friend. Think!

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      Keep quiet there,if the contract is legit it’s not your business. Tompolo is a Nigerian.

      • endingNaija

        Yes , Tompolo is a Nigerian, a Nigerian terrorist from the Niger Delta South South creeks! No doubt about that.

        • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

          DAT ONE CONCERN U ,NA U KNOW !

        • Benny

          Where were you when Emir Sanusi was dishing out contracts to his kith and kin in the North like El-Rufai that got N12 billion to supply just office furniture? However, what the Tompolo bought is not warships but Patrol Boats with mounted gunship. He is licensed by NIMASA to acquire such operational boats to execute his contract.

          • emmy

            Moomoo boy

          • endingNaija

            With the purchase of a war ship by a Nigerian terrorist, I have only asked Nigerians to be ready for the renewed creek South South terrorism from Tompolo and Asari Dokubo South South, Niger Delta terrorist groups when and after President Jonathan has been defeated democratically in 2015. That is the minimum thing I said. Your post provided more information on a different issue. You have rights to offer such information. I have only informed on the renewed terrorism from President Jonathan tribal men from the South South Niger Delta creeks as response to the looming defeat President Jonathan will suffer in the 2015 elections.

          • Benny

            In your mind you think Buhari that is like an expired drug will defeat President Jonathan! He cannot heal the problems facing multitude of Nigerians. All these sentiments will not work. Once more, Tompolo bought Patrol Boats which are sold over the counter with a license from NIMASA. So, if you and your APC apologist are not happy, you can as well seek your own license from NIMASA. This GEJphobia ain’t working. Devise other strategies!

          • endingNaija

            No in my mind I think President Jonathan and Tompolo’s WARSHIP “canoes” will be used to renew terrorism from the South South after President Jonathan has been defeated in 2015 elections.

      • Amir

        Online insurgent. Tell your empty head what qualifications Tompolo acquired in formal studies in security to make him a contractor. You SS misguided bigots have become an eternal embarrassment to Nigeria.

        • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

          Yeah……but the oyelli for SS backyard na eternal blessing for you abi ?

      • Col.MH Mariam (rtd)

        I am not surprised that you cavort with known terrorists.
        Says an awful lot about you.How can an individual and ordinary citizen buy a warship without it raising eye brows?What is his intent here?Is the SS really preparing for war against the rest of us? Giving these creek rats security contracts is quite puzzling. They get the money and funds that should have gone to equipping the navy and you have no shame defending such illegality. I pity you.

        • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

          Only a raw animal would refer to a legal international contract in such negative terms .Having known you for long I am quite convinced that your skull is empty,you cannot even remember what you put down last month what more of last year,you are an inconsistent confused piece of human trash.
          NIMASA is a coastal security agency with the legitimate rights to acquire such material. I challenge you to go to the Nigerian Navy inventory of vessels,you will discover that on the watch of GEJ,the Navy has acquired more combat and transport capability than all past 4 predecessors put together .
          Tompolo was a freedom fighter for the Niger delta region and no amount of name calling will erase the fact that the reckless neglect and environmental destruction of that region is a fact recognised up to UN levels. The events which led to that struggle are well documented and legitimate. TOMPOLO IS A NATIONAL HERO !!

    • emmy

      Moomoo

  • Johnson Omale

    This waterways contract should be cancelled with immediate effect. Nigeria is really in a deep mess.

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      The world supports a strong coastal security system to forestall illegal activities like oil theft and piracy which are in fact making our coastline one of the most precarious for mariners world-wide.
      Tompolo should be encouraged to get the good job done. Stop being an ingrate !

      • endingNaija

        What can be more ILLEGAL and CRIMINAL than the terrorist activities of terrorists like Tompolo and Asari Dokubo?

        • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

          Maami,
          Leave these two innocent harmless men alone.They are just local creek boys struggling to even feed their dependants through honest living !!

          • endingNaija

            to feed their dependants from the proceeds of OILED WARSHIPS! I SEE YOU Tompolo!!! Dis laf no go kill person ooo Tompolo and Asari!!!!

          • amazing2012

            You are cursed !

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            NO !! I AM BLESSED !!

          • endingNaija

            With Tompolo’s WARSHIPS

          • endingNaija

            TAAAAWWWWAAAANNNNDDDDAAAA!!! “harmless men” WITH WAAARSHIPS!!!

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            Those are not warships,they are unarmed and harmless refitted patrol boats !!

          • endingNaija

            You meant ARMED refitted patrol boats to be well rearmed, refitted and deployed to renew terrorism on behalf of President Jonathan after he has been defeated in 2015 elections?

          • endingNaija

            actually these Tompolo WARSHIPS are not “boats”, they are “canoes”! Tawanda yu no go kill person with your now well known legendary fraud and dishonesty! I just dey laf for naija!

          • Col.MH Mariam (rtd)

            Let the navy patrol the coastal waters of the nation. That is their mandate. Stop this illegality immediately. Ask yourself where this criminal got the money to buy a warship which even most African countries cannot afford.The SS may end up using it against the SE. These turncoats did before and will do it again. Be careful here.

          • Col.MH Mariam(rtd)

            Don’t mind TAWANDA and his rubbish. He sure does talk a lot of meaningless nonsense going from forum to forum.
            Busy body with no known job.

      • Johnson Omale

        You are the ingrate for siding a man Nigerians wrongly voted to rule them. Shame on you for siding a president that can not provide security for his country men and women. When we lined up in the hot sun to vote for a man we thought could rule our country well. you were busy destroying pipe lines in the name of resource control. GMB is coming to stop all these ill gotten money, be prepared to go into hiding.

        • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

          You are a sad joke !! Buhari was defeated before and he will be defeated again.NATO has been tring to take the town of Kobani for almost a month without success but you expect GEJ to erase the wordings of the Koran in 2 years with all the subterfuge from within. Buhari the same bigot who conceived the plan to construct a pipe-line and Nigeria’s biggest refinery in the north and wasted billions constructing a pipeline for 800 miles for political reasons.
          Buhari has to first account for the missing $2.8 billion which vanished on his watch as Petroleum minister before talking anti-corruption.

  • Strong System

    Our navy is just watching!!!!

    • endingNaija

      because there is no Navy under Goodluck Jonathan!

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        On GEJ watch,the Nigerian Navy acquired more fighting and transport vessels than it ever did from the last 4 previous administrations put together. Please try and research before making a monkey of yourself !!

        • endingNaija

          ANd same GEJ OILED Tompolo Asari Dokubo to acquire WARSHIPS more than double that the ones GEJ “geneorusly” have to Nigerian Navy! Right?

        • Mafar_Ka

          Yes, you will do us alot of good sharing your evidences on how the Nigerian Navy under GEJ “acquired more fighting and transport vessels than it ever did from the last 4 previous administrations put together”. Thank you.

    • amazing2012

      Write the contractors now! So Jonathan is giving contract to people to kill ? No wonder Boko never stop !! Jonny is the worst leader on earth !!!

  • endingNaija

    Who says Nigeria under President Jonathan will ever be able to defeat terrorism when terrorists like Tompolo and Asari Dokubo who are given the job Nigerian Navy is supposed to do are richer than the Nigerian Navy. ? After President Jonathan is defeated in the 2015 elections, and terrorists Tompolo and Asari Dokubo carry out their threat to spill Nigerian blood will the Nigerian Navy be able to counter them when President Jonathan has deliberately empowered them-the Niger Delta South South Creek terrorists to buy WAR SHIPS ready to spill Nigerian blood when Jonathan is defeated in 2015 elections while disempowering Nigerian military! I just dey laf for dis our Naija! Dis laf no go kill person!

  • Wähala

    No wonder Dumbo did not go to commission the $16 gas project in Delta State because the terrorist, Tompolo ordered him to stay away. No wonder Festus Keyamo fears for his life after Tompolo substituted names in the LGA elections recently held there. No wonder Nigeria has been losing over 300,000bpd of crude to illegal oil bunkering activities by these so-called ex-militants who are nothing but terrorists in the wings waiting to unleash ‘Plan B’ of Jona Dumbo’s evil machinations against the Nigerian nation. When everybody complained about the huge contracts awarded to criminals and terrorists without maritime experience, Edwin Clark and other regional jingoist rushed to justify them, now it’s up to them to explain what a thug & killer need sophisticated weapons for if they don’t have ulterior motives of causing further mayhem once their clown is tossed out of power. And, the UK Government has a lot to explain in permitting dangerous weapons flow thru their shores into the hands of terrorist. That’s how they armed ISIS terrorist in the Middle East who have now turned their deadly arms against innocent civilians across the region. Britain was and remains Nigeria’s biggest hitch in war against corruption, terrorism and economic sabotage. If truly the UK allowed a company smuggle illegal arms to known and dangerous terrorist, Nigeria’s civil rights orgs should complain to Brussels and demand sanctions be placed on all EU-based companies doing business with Nigerian thugs. Nonsense!

      Shut up your mouth. The US gave continent Nigeria 2 warships in May 2011 and another in April 2013 at the heat of Boko haram’s bombings and massacre. Pedestrian thinkers like you failed to see the complicity in the same US whose military tortures innocent suspects, being the same country accusing Nigeria and rejecting our offer to pay cash for military hardware to combat terrorists….Now, shouldnt Tompolo and the entire Niger Delta protect themselves from this US threat of 2 warships? Or you want to wake up to hear that the Niger Delta has become another Guatanamo? Nonsense

      The warships are for self defense. Pure & Simple. If you want, go buy your own.

      • Wähala

        “Self defense” ba?
        Amigo, if you’re counting on Igbo blood to defend your “pipeline dreams”…better jettison that idea before you gulp the next of that akpethesi your brain is floating on. The topic is Nigeria and not the US, we’re talking about dangerous thugs with dangerous weapons… and snipers to go along with that threat. Let me make one point rather clear to you Aborigine drunks: There will be toll-gate at Onitsha Head Bridge, ask your bros who gave them their weapons during those militant years. Clear on that… note urgently what I once said to @Deri, the Kingpin of Kitchen Crumbies: Your right to oyel deposits in our Naija Delta was sold by your uncles, Jasper Adaka Boro and Kenule Saro-Wiwa, you hia me so? Aboki bootlegs control the oyel wells, our Ewedu-lovers are charge of the “logistics” and Ndigbo are counting cash by picking the crumbs from all angles. Any distraction to that informal status quo will be met with stiff risistance by “stakeholders” in the Nigerian project. It’s too late to wake up in after your uncle, Dumbo, had celebrated our Centennial and start shouting, ‘gimme ma oyel’. Damn too late! OLOSHI… oponu!

        • _Proudly Niger Deltan

          I can see that that your affliction with the incurable blights of trepidation and servitude remain as intractable as ever. No wonder, you make defeatist statements as you have done. But be reminded that the Niger Deltans are Nobles who can’t be intimidated by anything. The North can attest to that. Jona has faced them ‘skwarely’ for 5 yrs, and will do so for the next 5 yrs…and nothing will happen.

          For you to imagine that the Niger Deltans will ever be afflicted with your ancestral spirit of uncommon cowardice, such as that which would cause abdication of a royal throne for the Abokis, is to take insanity too far. It is my hope & prayer that you find fresh hot palm wine to drink so that you can make a smooth transition to normalcy. You MUST understand and sink it into ur brain that Niger Delta is not Doddan Barracks where the Oloyes allowed one aboki after another to be exchanging the baton while they (Oloyes) looked on. Clearly, my people are not accustomed to such grotesque servitude. It will be fire for fire.

          • Wähala

            Let me tell you, I’m Biafran if that country is to be carved right away. I can guarantee my people will not only survive, we will dominate that expression called Nigeria today. That said, why am I against bloodbath? Because my people is the only ethnic group that understand the devastating effects of war. Again, that said… Where is your Ogidigbodigbo of Africa today? Henry Okah nko? Didn’t you clowns threaten SA with brimstone if Okah were jailed, his brother nko? Before you go nursing the false belief your people are cut out of leather, remember this historical data: Jaja of Opobo died in a foreign jail… so much for Dodan Barracks not being in your enclave. But, Odi ati Gbaramutu nko..? wetin una do till date? Even the compensation wey Judge order una neva see take gulp ogogoro yet, you’re shamelessly mouthing-off at a superior mind.

          • Lanre

            This is very interesting. If I might chime in to the rather engaging discussion between you and Wahala, don’t you think Jonathan should just organize a referendum. So we can all go our separate ways. Like you, I believe Nigeria is a fraud. And if you are close to Jonathan (i.e if you have his ears), please tell him that I commend him for his wily, machiavellian tactics in remaining and preparing to extend his governance. However, before the guns start booming and the fire for fire etc, can we not find a more peaceful way out? Only the poor will die when the conflict. The wretched, hopeless. The Boko Haram insurgency is a good example.

  • endingNaija

    The joke is out on those “Christians” who believe that President Jonathan is a “christian” candidate just because he is marketing himself as a “Christian” candidate just for the elections!!! I think in President Jonathan we are dealing with an Ijaw candidate who has empowered and OILED his fellow Ijaw, South South terrorists to blackmail Nigerians with war songs before he election and actually renewed the suspended terrorism from the south south creeks after he has been defeated in 2015 elections as it is clear now that the election will be decided on two issues-COMPETENCE and ANTI-CORRUPTION. Jonathan has failed on these two. President Goodluck Jonathan is incompetent. he is thick skin and irredeemably corrupt to the bone marrow.

  • MrFesh+Ifebuche+Paschal

    All this predicated on “Norwegian newspaper, said Tompolo in 2012 received at least six decommissioned Norwegian battleships.”
    And some daft guys are already swallowing it hook line and sinker. Naija press and Bosco halam I don’t know which is more deadly.

    • endingNaija

      Well said. I wonder as to where the photograph was taken, in Nigerian waters or abroad. Please bring us a photo of these vessels in Nigerian waters. This deal was allegedly concluded in 2012 and only now we know about it. If this is true, this is a total failure on the part of our intelligence. I consider it breaking news until the full details come to light.

  • Wähala

    Jona Dumbo is Jomogbomo, the terrorist who continued sending text messages even after Charles Okah was sitting in a Zulu jail, that’s why Henry his brother remains untried in any Nigerian court for the same crime, bcos he will spill the beans on Dumbo. The man is evil, I’ve been saying it for 5.5yrs yet no one seems to be listening. The Aborigines have stolen $20bn as start-up “Foreign Reserves”; they control our waterways with secretly purchased sophisticated weapons, control our oil pipelines that’s how they’re able to steal 300,000bpd unabated, what’s more…

    With Asari Dokubo’s open threats about the elections, fake pastor Oletsejafor’s cash-for-arms runs with his Dumbo-bought jet, and this revelation by Premium Times… who needs me to connect the dots? Methinks should Dumbo lose re-election next year, the Aborigines will turn Nigeria into a terrorist playground by starting their own carnage down yonder while the Dumbo-aided Boko Haram continue to upstage and over-stretch the purposely weakened Nigerian armed forces. Simply put, Dumbo wants the America prediction to come true so he can rush home to become their Jaja and local hero who achieved what Saro-Wiwa and Jasper Boro could not achieve: Aborigine Republic of Sou-South!

      “…they control our waterways…”
      Young one, are you ok? Is it my ancestral rivers and streams and ocean you refer to as “Our waterways”? You and who owns the waterways? Small time now Gani adams will tell us that your Yoruba people actually migrated from Urhobo land, all bcos of resources, and now you are calling my ancestral inheritance “our” .

      The sweat & blood of Jaja of Opobo and many freedom fighters flow in those rich & blessed rivers, and the rivers know those who own it. I hope you will be able to understand the parable.

        You can barely grow food in the riverine areas because either the water ways and/or the air are polluted. You all in the south-south depend on the food from the south-west or the north, to survive.

            How many of your south-south children drink baby crude oil formula in order to grow strong? And when the oil no longer has value, then what? Oil is down to $60 per barrel and it will go lower as a result of US shale oil. Most of you south-south people will go hungry and starve as oil prices keep going lower.

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            We Ndigbo have never depended on oil and gas…..raiding the oil revenue is an art perfected by the thieving northern oligarchs and their few Yoruba enablers. Our political independence is more important than oil…….If I were you I would abandon the worthless oil wells instead of all this insult .

          • Oleku

            Fact is, what is the oiless wazo business if oil becomes 1kobo per barrel? Why should they bother about how we survive? Since when have same oppressors who massacred over 3million innocent Igbo women and babies and who created boko haram to scuttle power from an SS citizen become good samaritans? We don’t care about them and we wish them well, they should do same too.

            Have you been to the delta region lately? It is a really hopeless place. Your leaders steal money from your mouths and leave nothing for your delta people. When they want more money they create trouble, deceiving the gullible population to help them fight for money they will not share with their own people.

          • Otile

            The Deltans are not starving either, unlike some people.

          • Guguru

            Of course not because the northerners send food down very cheaply for them to eat. The northerners have never held Nigeria hostage with its food the way the south people hold Nigeria hostage with its crude oil.

          • Otile

            Why can’t the Fulanis use their abundant food to feed the horde of their marauding hungry children? Physician heal thyself.

            Many children starve in wars. Those are the horrors of war.

          • Otile

            Not necessarily. Some sadists, you know who, deliberately blockaded Biafra, shot down planes carrying food to starving babies, sold Bakassi to another country to enforce inhumane blockade.

            We shall never forget. Every Igbo child must be made aware of this.

          • Guguru

            Every Igbo child should also be made aware that part of the reason Biafra did not exist was because the south-south people were leaking secret operational information to the Hausa – Fulanis who used it to defeat Biafra. Without the help of the south-south people, Biafra would not have been defeated.

          • Otile

            How could Biafra survive the combined forces of Britain, Russia, and Arabs who were there to suck_our oil?

            Some of those sadists are still alive, dining and wining with your father and uncles. For example Yakubu Danjumba is still alive sucking_oil from his enemy territory, in short dancing at the graves of his enemies. His reward is in eternal hell.

            Yakubu Gowon is also alive enjoying immense profits from his war. His reward is in eternal hell.

            Colonel Mobolaji Johnson is still alive enjoying Eko, a city build with crude oil from his enemy territories. When Col Johnson rounded the Igbo people up in Lagos people told him to leave the Ika Igbo, he refused saying – an Igbo man is an Igbo man no matter from what state.

    • endingNaija

      why? Because President Jonathan and Tompolo’s WARSHIPS are boats and canoes? Because you do not want to redeem the WARSHIP truth about these Goodluck Jonathan and Tompolo’s “canoes” or “boats as your other name Tawanda put it?

  • D_Proudly Niger Deltan

    MAY GOD BLESS TOMPOLO FOR HIS FORESIGHT….The peolpe of the Niger Delta are behind you
    ===============================================================================

    There is nothing, I repeat, NOTHING… absolutely nothing wrong with Freedom Fighter Tompolo buying warships. Has he attacked anyone since he bought the warships? Did Nigeria not obtain 2 warships from the US between 2011 and 2013? …This is the same US which failed to allow Nigeria buy weapons but could give 2 warships FREE to Nigeria to protect its (US’s) investment in my NDelta.

    Now, did you expect Tompolo and the entire Niger Delta people to sit and watch Nigeria acquire military hardware to intimidate the littoral Niger Delta? Shouldn’t the people get weapons to defend and repel any attacks? …The Republic of The Niger Delta knows what it is worth and should be able to defend itself…Warships are not used in Forests or deserts….so Nigerians need not be afraid.

    With the useless comments and mad logic, that someone in Sokoto owns the oil in the sea & waters of the ancestral territories of the Niger Delta, it is only appropriate to prepare for any eventuality…as the Niger Delta does not believe in the ability of Nigerian Navy to protect its resources and people. Pure & Simple….PT should therefore write about the endemic pollution of my ND, the rape and the illegal drilling of the resources of the NDelta people by Nigeria…and not this nonsense story. With all the threats of blood from APC politicians, it is only logical for one to protect his resources. God bless Tompolo and all other Freedom fighters of the Niger Delta.

    • Guguru

      Unproudly Niger Deltans,

      I just wanted you to know that Jonathan will eventually be caught and tried for his many crimes against Nigeria. LOL!

    • endingNaija

      but why did you call the WARSHIP a fishing “canoe” before? Why did you come around to admit that President Jonathan and Tompolo’s WARSHIPS are meant for terrorist acts when Predient Jonathan loses the 2015 elections? Why pretend before now that President Jonathan is a so-called “Christian” candidate when he is nothing more than an Ijaw candidate and is only using “christian” faith as a bogey and a front to pick votes and unleash terrorist acts if and when he loses the election? Why all these deceptions? Why deceive Nigerians?

  • Guguru

    Everything now makes sense. What is Jonathan trying to do? He is paying Boko Haram to destroy and weaken the north, he is deliberately making the Nigerian military weaker, while allowing the terrorists in the south to arm themselves through funding from stolen oil (pipeline vandalism). This is a very interesting plan. Boko Haram is all part of the grand plan by the south-south people to break away from Nigeria.

    • Wähala

      Dat’s it… Respect!

      • Guguru

        Wahala,

        It is so clear to me now. So, why are we surprised that General Ihejirika is an alleged sponsor of Boko Haram?

    • Oleku

      And what is wrong if the south south breaks out from Nigeria? What is your problem in self determination realization? How does it affects you if a part of the British fraudulent continental empire gets her freedom? Why do you Yorubas always get premature ejaculation whenever secession is mention? My advise to you is to seek to have your own republic, boundary and freedom. Keep your nose off other peoples struggle to self determination. We are not one and have never been

  • Oleku

    We the people of the Republic of Biafra and our closest allie the Niger Delta are in full support of Tompolo and we’re solidly behind him. As a matter of necessity the good people of the SE must start procuring warships and other artillery in preparation for the unknown. Already, the Mohammedans have acquired weaponry and helicopters which were intercepted in Kano and later released by orders of the northern oligarchs, we were later deceived that the were no weapons in the Russian air-cargo. This is a memo to Uwazurike and the liberators in MASSOB to tow the line of Ikemba and prepare for the impending doom next year. Comrade Tompolo is a great man, a visionaire and the voice of the oppressed of his Niger Delta, we as Igbos must not be left out and taken by surprise in this forthcoming war. Since them wazos have decided that we will not go our separate ways in peace then in pieces is welcome, Nigeria as it stands presently is an illegality. It has to be de-amalgamated even if means grabbing the bull by it blokous.

    God bless Tompolo.
    God Bless Asari Dokubo.
    God bless Uwazurike.
    God bless Benjamin Onwuka
    God bless the Republic of the SE&SS!

    • endingNaija

      Yes you are and should support the republic of South South.So President Jonathan and Tompolo’s WARSHIPS are BATTLE SHIPS! It is better to COME CLEAN on this than HIDE as you (Tawanda/the truth/otile / deri/Reno Omokri ) all have been hiding until we punctured every line from you. Come out into the open and declare your terrorist goals after President Jonathan loses the election in 2015. Such openness is more honorable than calling TERRORIST WARSHIPS “canoes”!

      • Oleku

        The ship was not procured with groundnut nor cocoa proceeds, they were bought with proceeds from oil, which is derived from Tompolo backyard. Tell me how the janjaweeds APC get the funds in which they used in funding their military wing boko haram and I will take you on that, tell me how the unproductive west and the barren north get the funds in which they run their oiless region and lets have a debate, you can also tell us how Ayatollah Tinubu ati Atiku ati Kwankwasiokor derived their riches from that will be welcome. If you can’t then zip it up. What happens to the oil resources of Niger Delta is not your business. Leech

          Yes it was bought with OILY money. We agree on that. That is not in contention. The contention is when YOU LIED and DENIED that it was not a proactive terrorist move by President Jonathan and his Niger Delta South South terrorist tribe men. I mean it is so obvious that Goodluck Jonathan and Tompolo’s WARSHIPS are a back up plans for when Goodluck Jonathan loses the election in 2015 as he will surely lose.

    • Proudly Niger Delta

      Thank you my Bro. You are blessed beyond measure. They never liked or wanted a SS or SE as president. Jona was meant to calm the SS so the North & West can continue their nefarious activity in reaping the SS&SE resources which they have not sowed. But God almighty changed the plans and circumstances changed.

      Now they get angry and team up to form APC and get terrorists to begin killings in making life difficult for Great Jona,….but they forgot that the average SS&SE is a Noble with stone heart ready to confront…and Jona moves on till 2019 when the East will produce the next President or Nigeria goes extinct. Period!

      Why should I be in a country where I can’t be a President or aspire to any office despite my resources. It will NEVER work. No matter the bad press, the truth remains, Jona has done more than all other nonentities before him who polluted all my Niger Delta and used the monies to develop Lagos & abuja. Time for change is NOW….Time to restructure Nigeria is NOW.

      God bless Confederating SS&SE.

            If it were not so why haven’t the oil companies left, why haven’t Yoruba oil barons left, why haven’t the rest of Nigeria allowed Biafra to secede?

          • Guguru

            Otile,

            Actually, the oil companies are leaving Nigeria and moving to either east Africa or off-shore oil platforms because of the criminal conduct of the Ijaw people.

          • Otile

        Who built Lagos and Kano with Niger Delta funds? You may be too young to know history of Nigeria in the early/ mid 1900s. I will refer you to the elders of your community who knows the story.

        If they will be honest, they will surely tell you about the Kano groundnut pyramid from which Nigeria earned foreign exchange. They will also tell you about cocoa and Lagos port that earned Naija huge foreign exchange. So also was exportation of coffee and a lot of mineral resources…

        Nigeria invested money from these and other sources of income into exploring and developing the oil wells in South South. The oil wells only started yielding oil after huge monetary investment. The fishermen and youths of today are now turning around to say it is just theirs alone. What of returns on our investments? I know you are too young to provide the answer but can you do me a favour by asking your elders.

        • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

          When shell discovered oil in Nigeria,the exploration was funded by shell 100% ,the groundnut went 50% to the north,the cocoa revenue went 50% to the west while the palm oil,rubber,cashew nuts went 50% to the then east.
          One wonders why the oil does not go 50% to the owners of the oil ?
          Our first constitution was the only one written without the northern military tyrants breathing on our shoulders and it specifically states 50% derivative .

          • Otile

            his elders probably do not know, their people have no business with governance, they agree to what ever their selfish leaders tells them; CR State is the biggest victim of PDP rule by loosing Bakassy, all oil wells to Akwa Ibom, and possibility of loosing parts of Obudu if crises persist in Nigeria; yet they are the greatest supporters of PDP misrule, their only concern is oil money, the money that have never made any difference to them

        • Yusuf

          I de laught una, mumu no go tire; blame your local leaders, some of the your states receives more than N200B per annum; your broda your president what has he done to u, he stole $20B in just one single year from one single transaction, I am not mentioning subsidy scam, military vote and so on; u do not know $20B? ok, it an amount of money that is enough to build 5000km high-tech speed train, or a refinery large enough to supply africa or an amount enough to share N170,000 to the entire people of ND. U are either sponsored or a complete illiterate

      mumu will never change, all the oil installations were built by Yoruba Fulani, if they leave the oil to them, they do not even know what to do with it. If the money ND received in the last 16yrs had reached the people, ND states would have been better than Zurich by now. By the way Igbo man what concerns u with oil, is it palm oil we are talking about or crude oil

    In civilized world, criminals can’t own guns. In Nigeria, criminals own war ships armed with missiles. There’s no place in the world where civilians own and operate military hardware. GEJ is crying he can’t buy arms to fight Boko Haram, but Niger delta criminals can buy warships.

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      The dictionary defines a “Criminal” as someone convicted by a court of law for a crime ! Tompolo is just a harmless innocent national hero whose propensity to peaceful resolution of conflict is quite commendable. Nigeria owes him and other peaceful freedom fighters of the creeks thanks and praises !!

Wallahi, the blood of the over 30,000 lives they’ve wasted thus far with his evil plans will never let Dumbo succeed. Ali Modu Sheriff is the architect of his NE strategy of weakening the North with BH terrorism, ND militant miscreants run the “Southern Front” of his cauldron plot, but in the end he will fail flat because only a pfoolish psychopath believes he can control other psychopaths… as proven by Tompolo’s ban on presidential movement in his waterways. Ali Modu Sheriff has equally lost control of his BH thugs… Hahaha chai!

          • endingNaija

            Oh sorry after you see how Jonathan is losing grounds in all states, the issue is no longer that Goodluck Jonathan is the “Christian” candidate because that will not work. Because you see that that is not working, you are talking about ‘oh it is about 1914…” This is my question: In the past you said you Ijaw/Niger Delta/PDP/South South /Goodluck Jonathan people are “christians” -right? And Jonathan and PDP are the “Christian” candidate/party-right? With your new argument about 1914 are you abandoning your “yoruba christians” “middle belt christians”, “Northern christians” -all those divisive myths you -PDP/Jonathanp people created and foisted on Nigeria/

  • Guguru

    Only unreasonable Igbo people support these south-south criminals. These same south-south people fighting for their crude oil these days betrayed Biafra and Ojukwu during the civil war for the same lack of intelligence many of them are exhibiting today about these war ships. They even have a local festival commemorating the betrayal of Biafra. Ojukwu was trying to warn them about the injustices in Nigeria which they are now seeing and complaining about, and they refused to listen. They allowed the same Hausa-Fulanis they now detest to enter through the creeks to defeat Biafra. These south-south people are chameleons. How any normal Igbo person would stand behind them beats me. They are now trying to use Igbo people to bulk up their delusional request by trying to tie their fight with the fight of Biafra. These are fraudulent people. For example, why does Jonathan not use his correct name? Jonathan’s name is “Ebelemi” and yet he chooses to use the name “Ebele”. His name is “Azikwe” and yet he changed it to “Azikiwe” at some point. Fraud all the way, and Igbo people are being sucked into the eye of the fraud.

    • Isi Agwo

            @ Tawanda incommunicado, judging from your delusional responses, i assume you haven’t taken your psychotropic medication again?

  • This is diversionary.What are the issues on the ground.Has Goodluck led a very competent government devoid of corruption and stealing.Even if the fund diversion was for eventualities in the Niger Delta, did Goodluck form a willing coalition to carry the zone along rather than concentrating on only the Ijaws Does the crude oil belong to the ijaws alone?
    Goodluck with all his challenges could have concentrated on the betterment of the lives of other communities truth be told.
    Nigerians are not looking for any leader from the North but one that is not corrupt. Had Idiagbon being alive today, Buharism would have long been dead.That is why Tinubu and Atiku are unelectable. Why are Nigerians clamouring for Buhari, it is because should wecallow GEJ to continue at this space, there might be nothing to steal in 2019.

    GEJ had all his opportunities but he abused it. When OBJ advised him he refused to listen all for a selfish ambition.

I hope these arming of a private militia is in the interest of the nation.

    Premium Times, it is sad the type of politics we play in Nigeria. First it was Alhaji Asari Dokubo on the plane with the seized money in South Africa now it is Chief Tompolo buying war ships. A simple Google search about the vessels named in your own report will give details of the 35 year old decommissioned patrol boats which the Norwegian navy has since sold as scarp and which Premium Times is presenting as warships.

    The boats in question “Hauk-class patrol boats” are patrol boats and not battleships or warships as Premium Times want Nigerians to believe. The Hauk-class patrols boats are a series of Norwegian fast Patrol boat built between 1977 and 1980 and were used for anti smuggling
    operations and for protecting the rugged coastline of Norway. Hauk-class patrol boats were last used in November 2006 as part of UNIFIL II in the coastal area outside Lebanon to prevent arms smuggling before they were scrapped in 2008.

    The KNM Horten is not a fast attack craft, but was built as a Norwegian support vessel in Horten, the city from which the ship was named. The KNM Horten was originally designed as a support craft for submarines and fast attack craft. After a change in the design which shortened the vessel this role was reduced. Rather than supplying smaller ships with ordnance, Horten functioned primarily as support craft with regards to food, fuel and water. In 1985, the ship served as royal yacht for king Olav V whilst the royal yacht HNoMY Norge was repaired after a fire in the winter that year. The KNM Horten was in service with the Royal Norwegian Navy until her retirement in 2008. After being sold by the Royal Norwegian Navy in 2012, The KNM Horten was employed as a Fishery Patrol boat

    Did the ships not pass through security checks before entering Nigeria’s waters? OK. If they have run foul of the law let the Navy seize them on behalf of the FG

    You guys are all missing the point. Nobody wins a war. This is so as you count casualties on both sides.
    Messrs Otile, Tawanda, Wahala, Guguru, et al. Please stop making rather provocative and inciting comments on social media. I am sure non of you is a soldier. I am also sure that you guys would not like to lose your loved ones in a war.
    Stop fanning the embers of war. Elections are about contesting and winning at the polls, not fighting and winning a war.
    The pdp led government has not improved even the lives of the niger delta people as our dear brother President Johnathan has not been able to site one landmark project in area.
    The APC has a right to field candidates for elections. If you don’t like their candidate, go ahead and vote for for your brother and stop talking about war.

    The ijaws are preparing for war with Nigeria, the urhobo’s, the itsekiris, isokos, anioma’s,ogoni,ikweres, ukwanis, agbors, efiks are not part of this war, infact most of this tribes have more oil in their domain than the ijaws. My tribe do so any war they are using the name of the Niger-delta to start is an ijaw war, I can assure u no tribe mentioned here and others not mentioned is part of this conspiracy against Nigeria. The ijaws are on their own. I speak as a south south person no shaking the ijaws guys dey make noise them nor reach couple. We go couple them now, now, now.

        …Disgrace with uncommon cowardly disposition to servitude…to the extent of permitting usurpation of an otherwise ancestral stool in Ilorin…It is a colossal tragedy and one of the remote causes of the conviction by the North that it can threaten anyone and get away with it. But the South & East are stopping all that nonsense. May the good Lord from whom all good things come, bless Honorable Tompolo, now and always. May He bless the work of his hands and legs. Amen.

        Self defense is a cardinal law of nature. When people who originally immigrated from Chad begin to lay claim to my territorial waters and resources, then someone must react becos ‘action and reaction must be equal but OPPOSITE. Honorable Tompolo is only trying to ensure some form of balance. His wisdom deserves commendation.

      War is never one sided. You speak for other South South people without really knowing your history. The Ogonis are not Ijaws. The Qua Iboe are not Ijaws, but they all need the liberations the Ijaws seem to be fighting for. The fact that they are not the front runners for freedom does not mean hen the time comes they wont cease the opportunity. Nigerians are generally follow-follow when there is some interest for them.

        So the issue is no longer defense of “christians” -something “Pastor” Ayo Oristejafor LIED about thruout when he was caught using his private jet for cash for arms in South Africa. The issue now is defense of Ijaw interests. The only person I pity here is Pastor G O Adeboye of Redeemed Christian Church of God who naively defended the crook called Ayo Oristejafor when his private jet was caught in money trafficking in South Africa. I hope by now Pastor Adeboye has learnt his lessons. And when next time President Jonathan visit the redemption camp to lie before God,Nigerians must ask Pastor Adeboye critical questions.

      Nigeria is in trouble. Well, maybe it is just best to disintegrate bcos the opposition seems bent on displacing the Niger Delta/South South from Presidency and installing a North/West team that has been in power for over 40 of 54yrs. Where then do the East & South belong? , and they (East & South) own the resources. I see disaster ahead bcos the South may not relinquish power and may also reject the North & West.

        There is no trap anywhere. If you reject South who provides the wealth, what makes you feel the South will accept the North and/or West? You will be in for a shocker. This your cowardice made you lose Ilorin forever. Be a man, if you are shot at once, pick up your stuff and fire back twice and strongly too. In that way, he who fired first will advice himself. Only in Nigeria do you find presidential candidates who are of the view that killer terrorists be granted amnesty.

  • This is diversionary.What are the issues on the ground.Has Goodluck led a very competent government devoid of corruption and stealing.Even if the fund diversion was for eventualities in the Niger Delta, did Goodluck form a willing coalition to carry the zone along rather than concentrating on only the Ijaws. Does the crude oil belong to the ijaws alone? What are his intentions? Is it for the Ijaws to establish a fiefdom so as to dominate the other tribes. We do criticize the Hausa-Fulanis and forget that our colonial masters did divide snd rule to their favour.They on their part also played smart by carrying others within their zone along.Ojukwu failed because he went alone even without his southern bretheren, some he even executed.
    GEJ and Tompolo’s intentions are therefore suspicious and parochial to say the least.
    Goodluck with all his challenges could have
    concentrated on the betterment of the lives of other
    communities truth be told.Nigerians are not looking for any leader from the North but one that is not corrupt. Had Idiagbon been alive today, the Buharism of today would have long died.That is why Tinubu and Atiku are unelectable and Tinubu has accepted his fate. Nigerians are
    clamouring for Buhari because with the speed of this corruption and stealing,
    allowing GEJ to continue will definitely tantamount to been left home and dry by 2019 as we shall be in the villages.
    GEJ himself has displayed extremist tendencies by moving from numerous pulpits of different
    churches and also visiting Israel.By their fruits we
    shall know them.
    What is hounding Jonathan out of power is not boko haram or the Fulani North but corruption, stealing and tribalism. OBJ made Sharia to look too ordinary and it fizzled out given the fact he felt they should restrict it to themselves alone.

    GEJ had all his opportunities but he abused it. When OBJ advised him he refused to listen all for a selfish ambition. Till tomorrow has Uncle GEJ ever thought of scolding Diezani while hunting down
    others.What about the massive smuggling of crude oil.

    • Peter

      Praise GEJ for safeguarding the interest of the Niger Delta Region by awarding the coast guard contract. Perhaps what idiots like you expect to see in the Niger Delta is the type of Boko Haram scenarios now playing out in the North East. Maybe best thing would have been to award the contract to Northern Islamic Brotherhood to safeguard the Niger Delta coastal waterways so that there will be peace. Even at that, it would have been okay for the contractor to implement the contact with bare hands or seek the consent of the islamic jihadist Buhari and Tinubu to bring their janjaweed militia to execute or recommend the type of equipment for the job. Nonsense people.

      • What Coast Guard contract with the massive stealing of Crude Oil by the Coastal Guards themselves.This is akin to telling a cat to watch over a rat.Most of you think in the reverse and are probably the ones making GEJ to lose the 2015 election.

      • Kolawole Obafemi

        The National Assembly should take note,reading this article,that GEJ’s govt is shielding and allowing the Niger Delta militants to pile up arms and heavy fighting equipment in that region Its getting clearer that the coast guard contract to former militants is a clever devise to arm the Niger Delta in case of a breakup of the country which we don’t pray for

    Nigeria is sitting on a time bomb that could explode at any time.Our problem is tribalism.No one is ready to tell his brethren the truth.Is it proper for an individual with procure this type of weapon,especially ex-terrorist?The answer is NO.People may give it any other name,militia,freedom fighter,separatist.rebel,but to me,it is all terrorism.The problem is that it is the poor that will suffer it.I pray that God will take total control of our country.I can assure any right thinking Nigerian that if independence is granted to Niger Delta today,withing a year they will kill each other and there will never be anything like Niger Delta again because of the wealth and tribalism.What we should know is that Niger Delta belongs to many tribe not only Ijaws.If power is giving to that area we should expect genocide.Very soon we will see the reason why these arms were purchased,only next month i.e February 2015.I pray that God will protect His own in Jesus name.
