Tanita Security Services Nigeria (TTS) Limited has denied involvement in the alleged illegalities of oil theft in the Awoye riverine area, as accused by the Nigerian Navy.

In a statement signed by Capt. Warredi Enisuoh, the Executive Director of Operations and Technical at TTS, it was stated, “Our attention has been drawn to a defamatory and libellous statement made by the Nigerian Navy against our organization, Tantita Security Services Limited.

“In the statement issued on Thursday, the 7th of December, 2023, by the Director of Naval Information, Commodore Adedotun Ayo-Vaughan, he informed the general public that the Nigerian Navy had detected and arrested a 77-meter-long motor tanker for crude oil theft with her 17 crew members.”

“He further added, and we quote, ‘It is believed that Tantita Security Services is involved in these illegalities because Awoye riverine area, which is close to the place of arrest, is covered by TSS.’”

“Again, it was upon the arrest of the vessel by the Nigerian Navy that TTS began to raise a false alarm, totally unfounded and indeed mischievous.”


“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 unaware 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 as we know that Nigerians know who is who.” It further reads in part.
