Officers and men of the Nigerian Navy Ship BEEECROFT, on routine patrol and giving real time response to emerging situations to activities on the Lagos State coastline, have intercepted wooden boats suspected to be carrying controlled substances into the state.

In a proactive response to credible intelligence using the state-of-the-art Maritime Domain Awareness System, the Falcon Eye Alignment, the Nigerian Navy Ship BEECROFT vectored patrol boats, were timely at arrival on the scene.

The areas covered during the patrol include Iworo, Ibeshe and Badagry coastal areas in Lagos State.

NNS BEECROFT patrol squads discovered medium-sized wooden boats laden with about 40kg each of 66 bags suspected to contain Cannabis Sativa.

Although the perpetrators fled on sighting the patrol team, the items were confiscated and handed over to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) for further necessary action.

This successful interception underscores the Nigerian Navy’s commitment and resolve under the leadership of Vice Admiral EI Ogalla, to thwart all forms of illegalities as well as to ensure a conducive environment for legitimate businesses to thrive for economic prosperity of our dear nation.

The Nigerian Navy also urges the public to support the onslaught against drug peddlers and provide relevant information towards eradicating the menace.

Under the leadership of the chief of the Naval staff Vice Admiral EI Ogalla, the Nigerian Navy is poised towards curbing illicit activities and ensuring the safety and security of our maritime domain while upholding the rule of law.
