Biafra Nations League, BNL, has berated the Chief of Naval Employees, Vice Admiral Awwal Gambo for deploying ships, tugboats, helicopters and aircrafts to the Gulf of Guinea.
BNL, which has its operational base in Bakassi Peninsula within the jap finish of the Gulf of Guinea accused the Chief of Naval Employees of “taking such selections due to our deliberate expulsion of oil firms working below Nigeria within the maritime boundary space of Bakassi Peninsula.”
In a joint assertion signed by the Nationwide Chief of BNL, Princewill C Richard, Deputy Nationwide Chief, Ebuta Akor Takon and the Chief of Employees of BNL, Linus Essien on Saturday night, the group mentioned “any navy operations within the Gulf of Guinea can be resisted by the inhabitants of the area.”
Recall that the Nigerian Navy had on the weekend deployed six ships, two tugboats, two helicopters and a Nigerian Airforce ATR42 plane to the Gulf of Guinea.
Vice Admiral Awwal Gambo, the Chief of the Naval Employees (CNS), had on Saturday inaugurated the eleventh Train Obangame Categorical 2021.
The flag-off of the multinational train for maritime safety was held on the board of the Nigerian Navy Ship (NNS) THUNDER, on the Naval Dockyard in Victoria Island, Lagos.
Gambo mentioned the massive sources and huge potential of the Gulf of Guinea was being undermined by multifaceted home and cross border threats.
The CNS mentioned the train offered one other alternative for the Nigerian Navy to work along with different nationwide and regional Navies within the spirit of the Yaounde Code of Conduct.
