The Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Ibas Ibok-Ette, said that the Nigerian Navy had engaged new strategies, including kinetic (movement) and non-kinetic, to stop the activities of criminals in the country’s maritime domain.

Ibok-Ette expressed worry over the increasing level of insecurity within and around the nation’s maritime space.

He explained that the operational capability of the Nigerian Navy was being challenged by the situation in spite of the efforts by the outfit towards ending the menace.

Speaking while inaugurating the Chief of Naval Staff Annual Sea Inspection for the year, tagged ‘Exercise Eagle Eye’, Ibok-Ette recalled that the navy had recently fought the negative trend of maritime insecurity and reduced the networks of those involved in the crime within the place.

Ibok-Ette observed that despite the achievements of the security unit, militants and economic saboteurs had continued to increase.

He added, “In consideration of this, the Nigerian Navy’s actions in the past few years to neutralise the threats of miscreants, include activating a number of operational initiatives such as choke point management and control regime with deployment.”
