Tompolo writes President Buhari another open letter

Former Niger Delta militant, Government Ekpemepulo aka Tompolo who is currently in hiding, has written another open letter to President Buhari. In his new letter, the ex militant leader asked the president to learn from former President Musa Yar'Adua who in 2009, introduced the Amnesty programme for Niger Delta militants after discovering that attacking the militants was not a good idea. The letter in part reads;

“Today is exactly 31 days after the invasion of the traditional headquarters of Gbaramatu Kingdom, Oporoza town, by your military led by Brig. General Faruk Yahaya of the 4thBrigade, Benin City, in search of me, with the allegation that I am the one behind the bombing and destruction of crude oil facilities in the Niger Delta region, and the incident happened in my absence, but I was informed that the army was on the loose, and committed so much abomination in the community. As I said in my previous publications, the military made away with the symbol of Authority of the Gbaramatu people from the Egbesu Shrine, [of] which I am the chief priest. They also made away with other valuables, worth several millions of naira, from the community. We are presently being treated like conquered people because of crude oil.
Mr President sir, please permit me to quickly recall a similar incident that occurred in May, 2009, when this same military invaded several communities in Gbaramatu kingdom, under the command of late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua. Traditional worship centres were desecrated, property were looted and above all, the multi-billion naira ultra-modern magnificent palace of the pere of Gbaramatu kingdom was burned down, and his golden crown was stolen by the military. As peace-loving people, the kingdom approached the courts and demanded compensation for the unlawful invasion and destruction of property, in which the court awarded 99 billion naira in favour of Gbaramatu kingdom. After seven years of that sad incident, the Federal Government is yet to pay the compensation.
This incident also led to the declaration of the Presidential amnesty programme for peace to reign, as the government find out that military action is not the best way to address the Niger Delta question, and the rest become a history in the life of those who led that invasion. I believe Mr President should learn a lesson from the 2009 military invasion and do the needful.”

I love my husband but I can’t stop cheating on him because I’m hooked on the attention

Read the agony aunt letter shared on UK Sun below...
I have just had a brief dead-end affair with a guy in my office. The sex was OK but it’s better at home with the man I love. I cheat on my husband again and again. I wish I could stop but I can’t. My colleague is one of those guys who seems to like being at work more than being at home.
He’s 42 and married with kids, but a terrible flirt. He’s up for a drink after work every night of the week.
I know what he’s like but he knows how to flatter and made me feel good. There’s a black hole inside me that shouts out for love and attention — whoever it’s from.
We went for a drink at the end of the day and that drink led to three or four more.
He said he had to go back to the office to pick up some files. I went with him and then we got kissing and ended up having sex on the floor.
The next week we did it again, and the week after that. Then I said it must stop. He didn’t seem overly bothered when I said, “Enough is enough”.
I’ve been with my husband for eight years. He’s 36 and I’m 34.
We have two lovely girls and I love him a lot, but I’ve cheated on him more than a dozen times since we got together.
He deserves so much better than me and I so hate behaving like this but it’s like I have no self-control.
I know my husband is faithful to me and the guilt eats away at me constantly. I wish I could tell him the truth just to make me feel better but I’m scared that he wouldn’t forgive me. I’m afraid that he’d leave.
I don’t want to keep on this way any more — but I do it again and again. I feel out of control.
