Nigeria In One Minute

Sea robbery has reduced — Labour union



There are indications that the ‘safe territories’ on the Lagos waters known as the Secure Anchorage Area, SAA, may have come under attacks by sea robbers. The attackers were said to have bridged the facility in search of petroleum products.

The facility was created by the Federal government following increasing insecurity on the Lagos waters.

A source in the Nigerian Customs Service, NCS, told Vanguard Maritime Report that there have been several attacks on the facility in an attempt to steal petroleum products in the last few months, but noted that the attackers have not recorded any success.

The source said unless an urgent measure is taken to stem the tide, the criminals may succeed, a development which will booster more attacks taking a big and more dangerous dimension.
