President Muhammadu Buhari at a recent Security Council Meeting has given a marching order to the Nigerian Navy and the Air Force to secure the maritime environment and ensure uninterrupted activities in the nation’s upstream sector of oil and gas industry including fighting the menace of oil theft.

The Nigerian Air Force and the Navy have therefore resumed Joint Maritime Operations for surveillance and patrol of the Gulf of Guinea to combat crude oil theft and other illegalities.

One of such operations was in the sea areas from Brass River entrance to Bonny River where the Navy and Air Force demonstrated their joint forces for an enduring opened sea lane of communications for effective economic activities.

The mission is to establish communication link with the Air Force on the high sea to nab vessels carrying out illegal activities.

The commanding officer NNS pathfinder says this sort of operation will be a regular occurrence, as the fight against crude oil theft continues in the country, many hope that this alliance between the Navy and other security agencies will yield positive results. (Channels TV)
