Tantita Security disagrees with Nigerian Navy over seizure of vessel in Ondo


Tantita Security Services Limited has disagreed with the Nigerian Navy over the crude oil vessel that was seized in the coastal waters of Ondo State.

Warredi Enisuoh, Tantita’s Executive Director of Operations and Technical, made this known on Friday.

Newspot reports that the Nigerian Navy had accused Tantita Security of being involved in illegalities.

According to the naval spokesman, Adedotun Ayo-Vaughan, the arrest was based on intelligence on the activities of crude oil thieves at the location.

However, the security company alleged that the Navy is preventing its operatives and other security agencies from boarding the seized vessel for further investigations.


The company called for an immediate probe into the incident.

“We are indeed saddened and disappointed that the Nigerian Navy could descend so low as to make such bizarre accusations against our organisation, knowing the same to be false.

“Perhaps they are not aware that video evidence of what transpired between the Tantita operatives and the Nigerian Navy at the scene exists and has been transmitted to the highest authorities.

“We will, therefore, not join issues with the Nigerian Navy,” the statement reads.
