The Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Mr. Haruna Jauro, has debunked claims that ex-militant, Tompolo's contract with the agency has been terminated by the Federal Government.

According to ThisDay Newspapers, Jauro said this while meeting with the Chief of Naval Staff (CNS), Vice Admiral Ibok-Ete Ibas, at Naval Headquarters, Abuja.

He said Tompolo's contract will run for ten years.

Speaking on the terms of the contract, vis-a-vis the duties of the Navy,  Jauro said “It does not. Yes, it does not because the Navy is one of its kind and no one is willing to go there and take anything from them."

Adding that "What Global West is doing is just to help NIMASA to look a the issue of that takes place in the waters, to push them back and I think we have done our best with them. So far the level of piracy has reduced in the Lagos area."

 

“We don’t have much reports of them again and they have been pushed towards the Delta area and we have been following them. And I think Global West has been instrumental to that  so far. It  (the contract) is supposed to be for ten years. It has run for three years," he said.
