Stakeholders Express Worry Over Spate Of Piracy On Nigerian Waters

Stakeholders on maritime sector on Sunday expressed worry over worsening spate of piracy on Nigerian waters with offenders allegedly operating without fear of being arrest and punished.

A cross-section of the stakeholders who spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in separate interviews called for the establishment of “Coast Guard” in the country and a push on Piracy Bill at the National Assembly.

The Coast Guard is a maritime, military, multi-mission service unique among the U.S. military branches for having a maritime law enforcement mission with jurisdiction covering both domestic and international waters.
