The Nigerian Navy has concluded its fleet training tagged “Exercise MAJEPO”, which when translated means “Do not steal oil.”
The exercise was performed to test the readiness of officers and men as well as machinery in the fight against oil theft, sea piracy, smuggling and other related vices along the nation’s maritime boundary. It had over 10 ships including the NNS Thunder. The event featured a parade by ships, arrest and seizures of offenders, gunnery including search and rescue operations.
MAJEPO was part of activities to round up the 58th anniversary of the Nigerian Navy.
