The Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Awwal Gambo, on Thursday lamented that some personnel of the Nigerian Navy are conniving with criminals to commit crimes on the nation’s water way.
He warned that any personnel caught would be dealt with according to the law.
Gambo spoke during the decoration of newly-promoted Rear Admirals at the Naval Headquarters in Abuja
He said, “While there are significant achievements in the various maritime crimes, there are pockets of personnel still colluding with criminals to sabotage these efforts.
“Let me therefore warn that any act of collusion with criminals to sabotage the measures in place to checkmate illegality will be met with stiff actions in accordance with the laws of the land. “
