Navy To Fight Sea Pirates, Oil Bunkers With 1,176 New Recruits by : 9:29 pm On May 20, 2019

The Nigeria Navy has said that no fewer than 1,176 young men and women have been recruited to assist in the fight against sea pirates and oil bunkers in the nation’s maritime domain.

 

General Abayomi Olonisakin, Chief of Defence Staff, disclosed this at the weekend during the formal passing out parade of Batch 28 recruits trained at the Nigerian Navy Basic Training School in Onne, Rivers State.

 

He said the trainees underwent rigorous physical and mental training for seven months to prepare them for internal security operations across the country.

 

“The trainees have been adequately groomed in basic naval seamanship subjects, including swimming and weapon handling. “Additionally, they have been imbibed with such basic skills, as self-discipline, teamwork, and overcoming of problems.

 

“The trainees were also tutored on basic civil-military relations, inter-agency cooperation and laws of armed conflict. They have been transformed and ready for deployment.”

 

Olonisakin said the Nigerian Navy, under its current leadership, had provided enabling environment as well as requisite logistic requirements to enhance the standard of training.

 

He said the trainees were joining the Navy at a time the Armed Forces were involved in many complex and challenging internal security operations across the country.

 

“Presently, the Armed Forces are engaged in insurgency and terrorism operations in the North East and North West; oil theft, illegal bunkering, pipeline vandalism, illegal refining and armed robbery in the South-South and piracy in the Gulf of Guinea.

 

“Over the past decade, the increase in the activities of non-state actors had continued to challenge the ability of our armed forces to overcome asymmetric security challenges. “This informed the holistic review of training the trainees underwent to confront the contemporary security challenges. “However, some of the trainees would be deployed in future to curb these security challenges,” he said.
