“The Nigerian Navy’s successes have been complemented by the deployment of state-of-the-art technology such as the Navy’s Falcon Eye surveillance system, which was inaugurated in July 2021

“This has made it possible for the Nigerian Navy to be prepared to effectively combat all forms of maritime crime within its area of jurisdiction.”

Audu lauded the successes recorded in Borno state and other locations across the country saying many Nigerians now do their businesses without fear of pirates.

“A recent visit to Baga road fish market in Maiduguri witnessed a heightened activity as the business has resumed fully with traders from all across the country converging for trading.

“This has been made possible by the presence of the Navy’s elite Special Operations Forces (SOFs) and the Nigerian Navy’s elite Special Boat Service – which is unmatched among SOFs in Africa, at the Lake Chad basin who have completely rooted out terrorists operating in the region. Baga in Borno State is now safe and people are fishing.

“This is the Same with the issue of pirates along Nigeria’s coastal waters where the Nigerian Navy has continued to frustrate the efforts of economic saboteurs. We now see pirates both local and international being arraigned in courts.”

The group lauded the president for a job well done in the military as Nigerian armed forces neutralized Boko Haram in the Northeast and other parts of the country.

“Following the introduction of homemade solutions to tackling insurgency in addition to the acquisition of platforms and equipment to prosecute the war as well as training exercises for troops who are now fully acquainted with this nature of asymmetric warfare.

“Today, over 83,000 terrorists have surrendered to troops in various locations following a sustained push by the military to root out remnants who still hibernate in some locations of the northeast.
In the Northwest region of the country where bandits held sway for some time, displacing villages, killing innocent civilians and kidnapping for ransom, we see a drift in the situation for the better as the military through their onslaught have taken down so many bandits leaders and their collaborators the once troubled region now has its sanity restored.

“All these have been made possible by the existing synergy among security agencies with the massive support being given by President Muhammadu Buhari.”
