A Northern group, Arewa Intelligentia Caucus on Thursday, called on President Bola Tinubu to probe the Nigerian Navy under Chief of Naval Staff, Admiral Emmanuel Ogalla, over alleged crude oil theft, economy sabotage and promoting insecurity in the nation’s waterways.

 

The group in a statement by Abubakah Ciroma and Nasir Adamu, President and Publicity Secretary respectively, and made available to newsmen accused the Nigerian Navy of providing security for oil thieves.

 

The group therefore implored President Bola Tinubu to set up a probe panel like that of the Obaze investigative team that has exposed the rot in the Central Bank of Nigeria, to probe the Navy over the sea of allegations against it.

 

They also called for the immediate sack of the Chief Naval of Staff, Admiral Emmanuel Ogalla to prevent interference with the investigation.

 

They said the Naval Chief despite glaring evidence of his men being caught red handed colluding with oil thieves has failed to discipline them.

 

The Arewa Intelligentia Caucus noted that the allegations levelled against the Nigerian Navy must not be swept under the carpet, saying that “they are serious, damaging and demands a thorough investigation to establish their veracity.”

 

The group also accused the Nigerian Navy of sabotaging the efforts of private security outfits, especially Tantita Security Services Limited, engaged by the Federal Government to protect the nation’s oil assets.

 

The group noted that since Tantita Security Services Limited took on the job of providing surveillance over oil assets so much have been achieved.

 

 

They said reports available to them showed that crude oil production has improved dramatically to over 1.7 million barrels per day, from below 700 thousand barrels it was before Tantita Security Services Limited stepped in.

 

They said the Navy feels humiliated and angry for the assignment of its function to private companies, adding that this was why it is out to continually find fault with the companies and get their contracts revoked.
