A US naval warship is expected to dock in Nigeria’s commercial city of Lagos next Monday on a week-long visit, tagged “transiting the Gulf of Guinea,” Nigerian Navy (NN) officials said here. NN spokesman, Capt. Henry Babalola, said while in Lagos, the ship would be involved in a joint training exercise with NN personnel. He said the joint training exercise would hinge on the automatic identification system aimed at enhancing NN’s capability to monitor vessel traffic in Nigerian waters. “During the port call, the ship’s personnel will visit places of interest in Lagos and also have social and sporting activities with their Nigerian Navy counterparts,” the spokesman added. NN officials said the visit was in furtherance of the “robust bilateral cooperation between Nigeria and the US”. Panapress.
