It was gathered that reprieve came in the way of the suspects when it was discovered in the course of the investigation that their arrest was made in error in the first instance by the Nigerian Navy

The suspects, who were initially handed over to the police by the Navy, were released when the authorities at the Naval headquarters were convinced in the course of the investigation that their arrest was a “mistake.”

It was gathered that the Naval authorities prevailed on their police counterpart to free the suspects for “want of satisfactory evidence to prosecute them.”

Reliable sources in TANTITA confirmed their release to Journalists on Saturday, adding that the latest development had vindicated its employers.

The Tantita’s management, which protested the fate of its personnel, said the action smacks off blackmail and intimidation and demand their immediate release.

Tantita’s management described the action as “unjustifiable, unwarranted and provocative.”

“Our personnel, who were unlawfully arrested for trumped-up allegations of illegal oil theft along Lagos waterways have been freed and released to re-unite with us. The Navy, upon outcome of thorough investigations directed the Police to release them. As Tantita stated initially, our men were on legitimate duties when they were unlawfully arrested.”
