Tantita Security Services Have Saved Niger Deltans From Untimely Death, Other Issues – Oyinbi

By Oyinbi Onduku

It is on record over the past twenty years in the Niger Delta region, South-South Nigeria where incessant fire disaster and untimely death was on the increase in weekly basis as result of the activities of illegal oil bunkering, especially the process of local refining popularly known as Kpo-Fire.

The menace also renders our young married ladies widows in the ljaw riverine communities because most of their life partners venture into the Kpo-Fire business due to its lucrative nature in making quick money.

To prove your doubt, take a tour to any of the ljaw riverine communities across Burutu, Warri South-West, Bomadi, Patani in Delta State, and Southern ljaw, Ekeremor, Nembe and Brass LGAs in Bayelsa State, you will discovered that most of our youths are facially disfigured in parts of their body as result of severe fire accident incurred during cooking and burning (refining) of crude oil to kerosene, fuel and desiel for commercialization.

Though Kpo-Fire business is very lucrative in terms of income generation but it is equally dangerous and more deadly than natural death.

In the process of locally refining the crude oil to fuel or kerosene, any slightest human error will cost one’s life death otherwise permanent disability is the saving grace of God upon your life if you paradventure escapes death at the spot of the fire incident.

Since the Federal Government of Nigeria awarded the pipeline surveillance job to the foremost Niger Delta ljaw freedom fighter cum human rights activist, High Chief. Government Oweizide Ekpemupolo aka Tompolo, the man behind Tantita Security Services Nig. Limited in August 2022 to check oil theft in the Niger Delta region, there was no single record of fire accident neither sudden death as regards to Kpo-Fire activities in the riverine communities.

Tompolo with the little surveillance contract, many stakeholders are meaningfully engaged with rewarding jobs of being part of the project, thereby diversifying their mindset from the life taken risk illegal Kpo-Fire activities to other legitimate businesses in their various communities.

Now that the people of Niger Delta have embraced a new live and appreciated the good work of Tantita Security Services in safeguarding the nation’s critical national assets, gradually remediating the once battered Niger Delta Environment as result of Kpo-Fire activities, it is very important that the current administration led by His Excellency, Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu should take advantage of the successes achieved so far by Tantita within a year.

The current administration will continue to enjoy more revenue growth and uninterrupted flow of crude oil for commercialization if the contract status quo is sustained.

In addition, federal government should expand the contract scope of Tantita Security Services Nig. Limited in order to effect the safety of Nigeria’s critical national assets as well as increase the daily barrels of oil production for both domestic consumption and export purpose.
