Pipeline Surveillance Contract: Group Accuses Tompolo, Tantita Of Allegedly Plotting Evil Against PINL

Warri, Nigeria: The Niger Delta Security Watch (NDSW) has issued a statement addressing allegations made by the Niger Delta Stakeholders Forum (NDSF) against Pipeline Infrastructure Surveillance Limited (PINL).

According to the NDSW, the NDSF had accused PINL of poor performance on the pipeline surveillance contract, but the watchdog group has chosen to respond due to the severity of the claims and their potential impact on the national economy.

In a statement signed by spokesman George Fiberesima, the NDSW stated that the Niger Delta Stakeholders Forum is simply an arm of Tantita Security Services Nigeria Limited involved in sabotage and blackmail against another company.

The statement claimed that Tantita’s management has been engaging in clandestine activities against PINL due to greed, ethnic bias, and an ethnic agenda, alleging that Tantita has been sabotaging PINL’s operations and has had security issues with the Nigerian Navy, which they have been covering up through their proxies in Abuja.

The group further alleged that Tantita stage-managed a protest against itself in Lagos to curry sympathy and that the group, Niger Delta Stakeholders Forum (NDSF), which accused PINL of “pocketing Billions of Naira every month doing nothing about the Pipeline Surveillance Contract,” is an appendage of Tantita.

Sections of the statement read, “Ordinarily, we would have ignored it because it is done by a group of hungry, frustrated youths who normally hide under ethnic tension to feather their nest but because it has to do with the National Economy and Sabotage of operations of critical assets we have chosen to respond.

“It is sad that the management of Tantita Security Services Nigeria Limited will go to this length in their campaign of blackmail and calumny against another Company in the guise of trying to secure a contract. It is a well known fact that since the rebranding of the defunct Global West Vessels Security Limited as Tantita Security Services Nigeria Limited and subsequent entry into the Pipeline Surveillance Contract award, there has been clandestine activities by the Management of Tantita against PINL due to greed, ethnic bias, and an obvious ethnic agenda to subdue, colonise, oppress, eliminate, and change the identity of the Itsekiri Homeland.

“Aside, the stage managed Nollywood style arrest and burning of old hired vessels by Tantita as showmanship for the media to give them accolades for what they are not doing, it is being alledged that the Management of Tantita also goes as far as sabotaging the Operations of PINL just to give it a bad name.

“Our investigation revealed that it is the kiths and kins of the Management of Tantita that causes economic sabotage on the Tans-Forcados Pipeline (TFP) using the cover of their company Security operatives. It is also on records that Tantita has had security issues with the Nigerian Navy at various points in their operations but has been using money to cover up their track through their proxies in Abuja.

“We wish to put it on record that 80% of the Tans-Forcados-Pipeline is in Omadino Land and Tantita seeking the revocation of the Surveillance contract of PINL along the TFP is as a result of greed and an assumption by their management that they own sophisticated weapons that can be used to cause economic damage should their request is not granted.

“The NDSF is an appendage of Tantita else it wouldn’t have denied the fact that Tantita stage managed the protest against itself in Lagos to curry the sympathy of unsuspecting Itsekiris in Warri and as a magnanimous people those from Warri South under Tantita payroll were led to believed that their source of lively will be soon be cut off hence some of them went for the staged press Conference at Ugbodede. It is on record that all those who attended the press Conference are employees of Tantita and not Itsekiri stakeholders. We wish to inform the world that the Itsekiri stakeholders from Host Communities of the TFP will speak at the appropriate time.

“The NDSF is also hallucinating by saying PINL handles over 80% of pipeline surveillance contract in the Niger Delta while Tantita handles less than 20%. If there is anything to take home from this, it is the fact that Tantita is being pushed by greed and lost for power to acquire illicit wealth and take what does not belong them.”

NDSW called on the federal government and relevant stakeholders in the Niger Delta region to be wary of the gimmicks by Tantita and its owner, Tompolo who it claimed has not genuinely accepted amnesty.
