NIMASA D-G tasks intelligence units to fight piracy in Nigerian waters

NIMASA signs up to Lloyd’s List Intelligence to improve counter piracy efforts. 
The Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, Dr. Dakuku Peterside, on Friday urged all intelligence units of the agency to up their ante on intelligence gathering to stop piracy in Nigerian waters.
Peterside gave directive while addressing the staff of the agency in the Eastern Zone during the Agency’s Management visit to the Zone.
Peterside said: “One area we need to lay more emphasis on is the Eastern offshore enforcement, which appears there is a gap right now.
“We have a lot of offshore facilities in the Eastern Zone and over time, we have not taken the enforcement of the area very seriously.
“Right now, we will now take it seriously, especially with the availability of the enforcement platform.”
