Tompolo Intercepts Massive Vessel With Stolen Nigerian Crude Oil, and THIS Happened (Photos)

 

Former Niger Delta Militants leader, High Chief Government Ekpemupolo, a.k.a. Tompolo and operatives of his security company, Tanita Security Services, a private security contractor working for the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited have intercepted a huge vessel suspected to be carrying stolen Nigerian crude oil, IgbereTV has learned.

The 1, 117 tons vessel intercepted on Wednesday, 2nd August, 2023 in the Koko area of Delta State, was carrying about 8,100 barrels of crude.

 

IgbereTV understands that Tanita operatives encountered formidable resistance during the operation but they held their ground after receiving backing from the National Security Adviser and the Chief of Naval Staff, eventually seizing the vessel.

 

During their routine patrol, Tanita operatives spotted the vessel, which was reportedly flying the flag of Togo.

Credible Intelligence had led them to suspect the vessel’s cargo was illicitly acquired crude oil.

 

When the Tanita operatives tried boarding the vessel, they encountered resistance from an accompanying Navy boat led by Cdr Musa. Despite threats of forceful action, the Tanita team stood firm and refused to yield.

 

 

Sources say the National Security Adviser and the Chief of Naval Staff were promptly notified, and they swiftly authorised the Tanita operatives to proceed with the interception.

 

 

Crude oil theft has been a concern for Nigeria and has resulted in substantial losses. Last year alone, the nation suffered an estimated daily loss of 470,000 barrels of crude, translating to a staggering $700 million.
