The Nigerian Navy has promised to increase its presence in the creeks in Lagos and Ogun states to check the activities of pirates and pipeline vandals.
Towards this end, more gunboats will be deployed to suspected vulnerable areas in the waterways of both states.
The newly-appointed Flag Officer Commanding (FOC), Western Naval Command, Rear Admiral Raphael Osondu, made this known in Lagos.
Admiral Osondu took charge of the western fleet of the Nigerian Navy on Wednesday, taking over from Admiral JKZ Ango who is now the Chief of Administration at the Naval Headquarters, Abuja.
He promised to consolidate on the gains of his predecessor, noting that Lagos being the hub of commercial activities, also has its challenges peculiar to the state.
“I have just assumed duty, I promise to consolidate on the gains of my predecessor. We are going to deploy more of our gunboats to fight illegalities on our waters,” he said.
Earlier, the outgoing FOC, Admiral Ango noted that the command surmounted most of its challenges, “including the last general elections.”
