The source said, ”A committee has submitted it’s report and NNPC has recommended their disengagement”.

Henry Ikem-Obih, a Chief Operating Officer (Downstream) in NNPC, had on March 17, revealed that about 130 million litres stored at the Capital Oil & Gas depot and over 30 million litres in MRS Limited depot were missing.

He said the companies were called to explain and given two options to either return the full volume of what was stored in their depots litre-for-litre or pay the full value of the products taken without approval.

The officials were reported to have been sacked and later advised to resign, but are now officially disengaged from the services of the corporation.
