The attention of the management of Obat Oil and Petroleum has been drawn to the fictitious report making round in the Newspapers and social media about a purported takeover of the company by Skye Bank. We hereby refute the report and state categorically that there was no such incident.
Contrary to claims that the take over was approved and initiated by reason of the Federal High Court ruling, there is no ruling of the Federal High Court directing or authorizing Skye Bank to take over Obat Tank Farm/ depot or its operations.
There has been no take over of Obat offices/tank farm and operations, rather the Company’s offices have been operating at optimum capacity thus leaving news planted in the news media about its take over in bad taste.
We therefore urge members of the public to disregard such news and publications.
