Below, we present the central themes and key points from the post Oil theft: 4 arrested Tantita security operatives exonerated, freed.
Four operatives of the Tantita Security Services Nigeria Ltd (TSSNL), arrested for alleged oil theft by the Nigerian Navy (NN), have been cleared and freed.
“Our personnel, who were unlawfully arrested for trumped-up allegations of illegal oil theft along Lagos waterways have been freed and released to reunite with us.
It will be recalled that NN had, on April 29th, claimed that it arrested four operatives of TSSNL at New Ikotun Community, Lekki, Lagos, for attempted oil theft.
The security outfit had insisted that the victims were on the manhunt for the oil thieves when they were unjustly apprehended by the Naval personnel attached to the Nigerian Navy Ship, NNS Beecroft.
“Tantita and Navy are now partners in progress and henceforth, we will operate in synergy to turn the heat on illegal oil operators in every part of the oil-producing areas and creeks of the Niger Delta region,” a Tantita source, which craved anonymity, noted.
