Nigerian Navy gets maritime surveillance equipment to monitor Gulf of Guinea

The Nigerian Navy has opened a maritime surveillance and intelligence fusion centre to monitor piracy and ship movements throughout the Gulf of Guinea from the Eastern Naval Command base in Calabar.

Speaking at the centre’s inauguration ceremony, Flag Officer Commanding the Eastern Naval Command, Rear Admiral Joseph Aikhomu said the new facility, which is equipped with radar and satellite monitoring equipment, will enhance the navy’s intelligence gathering capacity as it continues to battle piracy and oil bunkering across the Gulf of Guinea.

He said the long-range surveillance facility will also shorten the relay of information from ships in distress and shorten the reaction time for security forces on rapid deployment and rescue missions.
