The Court had ordered the ex-militant to appear before it today to answer a 40-count of alleged N13bn fraud levelled against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

While all his co-accused, including a former Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, Patrick Akpobolokemi, were present in court, only Tompolo failed to appear.
The Judge then issued a bench warrant on him and ordered the police to produce him in court by all means.
