Written by on November 10, 2022

The Group Chief Executive Officer (GCEO) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC), Mr Mele Kyari has alleged a threat to his life over his role in curtailing the theft of oil running into trillions of naira in the country.

Speaking during the legislative transparency and accountability summit held yesterday in Abuja, he contended that such a threat would not dissuade him from embarking on the task of repositioning the oil and gas sector in the country.

Guardian reports that the NNPC chief who did not mention those behind the threat to his life justified the decision to engage the oil pipeline surveillance team, Tantita Security Services Nigeria Limited, led by Government Ekpemupolo popularly known as Tompolo, arguing it was aimed at curtailing the massive theft of oil in the country.
