services to hundreds of trafficked children and young Nigerians and
“Our services have made lasting impact not only on the trafficked persons but
on the society at large. We have branded Intels Ltd., an ever dependable
partner,’’ it quotes Umar as saying.
The statement noted that the Director of Hope House Initiative, Mr Paul Umoh

the years, saying that Intels, which handled oil and gas cargo had been
partnering with both organisations in the past five years.

The company has created an integrated logistics solution with an array of
facilities and services for the oil and gas industry operators in West Africa.
