New FOC, Western Naval Command Speaks On What He Will Do To Kidnappers In The Riverine Areas

On resumption, the new Flag Officer Commanding (FOC) Western Naval Command, Rear Adm. Oladele Daji has promised to evacuate kidnappers from the riverine areas of the command

Speaking with journalists after he took over as 39th FOC of the command in Lagos on Tuesday, Daji said that the navy would do its best to rout kidnappers completely out of the area.

“What we know about kidnapping in riverine areas is that it is on the decrease.

“We are going to rout them out from the source because they don’t live perpetually at sea, they have somewhere that they operate from so we will rout them out.

“What we are coming to do is to build upon what has already been done, maybe to bring fresh ideas to some of the challenges we have out there as the maritime expands,” he said.

Daji also commended President Muhammadu Buhari for acquiring more patrol boats for the Nigerian Navy.

This is not to say that we have enough because the past maritime expands but with the use of the Maritime Awareness Domain facilities, we will use these assets provided for us to ensure we accomplish our tasks,” he said.
