The recently acquired ship of the Nigerian Navy was greeted by the Nigerian Emissary to the Monarchy of Gabon, Raymond Udoffe Brown, in Port-Gentil.
Brown was joined at the reception by Ibrahim Dewu, the Flag Officer Commanding the Nigerian Navy’s Eastern Naval Command, who serves as the Chief of Naval Staff, Awwal Zubairu Gambo.
In a statement issued in Abuja, Sarah Sanda, media secretary to Nigerian Foreign Affairs Minister Geoffrey Onyeama, said the arrival of NNS KADA in Gabonese seas was part of the Nigerian government’s commitment to fighting illicit activities like piracy in the Gulf of Guinea.
Nigeria’s dedication to combating human trafficking and piracy is shown in this visit.
According to Brown and Dewu, the mission is part of Nigeria’s resolve to combat human trafficking, piracy, and other severe crimes.
The NNS KADA, which is 100 meters long and 16 meters wide, was manufactured in the United Arab Emirates.
