The  Nigerian Navy Ship Central Naval Command on Wednesday deployed one helicopter, four ships and two  patrol boats to curb oil theft and  other illegal operations  on Nigerian waters.

The Flag Officer Commanding,  Central Naval Command, Rear Admiral Saidu Garba,  said  this during the opening  of the third quarter sea exercise of the command, code-named Doufiyayai Kekere (Sea Protection), in Warri.

Garba said the exercise, which will last for three days, was  to   ensure that the Navy  dominated  the maritime environment.

He said, “We conduct this exercise every quarter in order to try to dominate the sea environment and to ensure that all criminal activities are checked.

“The  purpose of this is to ensure that the ships both in Warri area and Port Harcourt cast off to sea and conduct this exercise.”

Fleet Commander Central, Commodore Sunday Oguntade, said, “The ships will conduct gunnery practices, visual communications exercise and  fleet manoeuvres among others.”
