Tompolo, in an interview on Channels Television, pointed out that the stealing of crude oil is being carried out by the same security agencies that are supposed to catch the thieves.

He said: “Security officials are behind this oil theft. They are deeply involved. They are trying to bring down this country. You will find security personnel all over the place. Though we have good ones, there is no way you can load a vessel without settling the security officials that are within that area.”

He warned the thieves to desist from the action, otherwise, he would expose them.

“I have a comprehensive list of those who are involved. A lot of key players are involved, from Abuja to Lagos. We are appealing to the top security officials to talk to their people to change,” the ex-militant leader asserted.

Tompolo said from the intelligence at his disposal, most of the security agencies including the Army, Navy, Police and DSS have illegal bunkering locations. He said only the Department of State Security (DSS) has not been mentioned in the looting of Nigeria’s oil wealth.

He warned that if crude oil theft is not halted, there would be no money to run the country. reports that Nigeria has seen increased oil theft in recent years. The NNPC had earlier said that the country loses 470,000 barrels of crude oil monthly amounting to $700 million to oil theft.
