ASABA-  A  Traditional High Chief, Comrade Mulade Sheriff, the Ibe-serimowei (Kingdom Promoter) of the Ancient Gbaramatu Kingdom of Delta State, has expressed profound joy over the dismissal of all the 40 count charges against a Niger Delta freedom fighter, High Chief Government Ekpemupolo, popularly known as Tompolo, by a Federal High Court recently.

  Chief Sheriff Mulade who doubled as the National Coordinator, Centre For Peace And Environmental Justice (CEPEJ) disclosed this to our reporter today in  a press statement made available to Newsmen in Asaba, Delta State capital.

Chief (Comrade) Sheriff Mulade noted that Tompolo has contributed positively to Niger -Delta development, although  faced with  several persecutions,  yet  he attracted the Nigeria Maritime University to Okerenkoko, Delta State, as well as other mega projects to the region.

Chief Mulade then  commended Tompolo for his steadfastness and doggedness against all odds towards securing a better life for the Niger Delta people.

World Distinguished Activist, Mulade then urged him to sustain the struggle for the emancipation and development of the region, adopting a non-violence approach of constructive engagement through peaceful dialogues.

"I use this medium to congratulate the former Director General of the Nigeria Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, Patrick Akpolokemi and others for the freedom and exoneration of the once troubled Niger Delta forward looking personalities".

"The Federal High Court Victory is timely. I  regard the  outcome as victory and good news for the Ijaw Nation and the Niger Delta Region at large".
