NIGERIAN NAVY ARRESTS 7 MEN FOR PROVIDING MARITIME SECURITY SERVICES

On 23rd October, Insurance Marine News reported that the Nigerian Navy recently intercepted a small craft and arrested its occupants for providing security services to a merchant ship and who did not have the appropriate permit to operate as a security vessel.  Nigeria forbids the presence of private maritime security contractors in its waters, and prevents Gulf of Guinea vessel operators from using on-board armed guards, but does permit civilian boats and armed Nigerian Navy active duty service members – though some security services firms have said that this system suffered from high costs and poor reliability.
