The attention of the Management of Darlon Security and Guards has been drawn to a resolution passed by the Bayelsa State House of Assembly on the 11th july 2018. The said resolution was the outcome of a motion which was sponsored by Retired Colonel Bernard Kenebai a member representing Sagbama constituency two.
In the said motion retired Kenebai alleged criminal acts against the company’s operation in the Swamp Area of Bayelsa State.
Curiously, Personnel of Darlon Security and Guards does not bear arms, rather they work with conventional security such as the JTF (Operation Delta Safe), Nigerian Army, Nigerian Navy, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Nigerian police and the Department of State Service (DSS). If a suspect is arrested in the course of its duty he is handed over to the appropriate authorities for prosecution. The company has nothing to do with the alleged act.
Rather than condemning the activities of Darlon Security and Guards, the House should have commended the company for combating the menace posed by oil thieves.
Our operations in the last couple of years have changed the narrative in the entire Swamp Area which hitherto was the hotbed of crude oil theft, pipeline vandalism and illegal refineries.
Today, the state revenue has increased tremendously with more funds coming to the government coffers through the 13 % derivation as a result of increase in crude oil production due to our operations in conjunction with the security agencies in the swamp area.
In addition, over 4000 jobless youths have been taken off our creeks and streets through our effort by engaging them in surveillance jobs and also helping to curb illegal refining of stolen crude oil and the attendant destruction of the environment and aquatic lives.
Also, medical outreaches were organized at different times for the rural folks in the Swamp Area, while women also are being empowered as part of our corporate social responsibilities.
It is also an established fact, that multinational oil companies have commenced projects in communities due to the drastic reduction of oil theft in the general area.
To this end, we consider the resolution as moved by Hon Kenebai as ill-conceived, malicious, unfounded and politically motivated, all in an attempt to cast aspersion on our genuine efforts to secure the nation’s critical oil and gas assets and discredit us in the public domain.
The Management of Darlon Security and Guards is unperturbed and will not be distracted but will focus on its core mandate of eliminating all forms of criminality against oil & gas facilities in the swamp area.
Darlon Security and Guards reject in strong term the allegations leveled against the company as contained in the resolution of the House.
