The United States Coast Guard Cutter Mohawk (WMEC 913) has berthed at the Nigerian Naval Dockyard in Lagos on Friday.
Mohawk officers will meet with Nigerian Navy leadership at the Western Navy Command Headquarters in Apapa and host ship tours for government and military officials.
The ship will conduct two days of at-sea engagements with the Nigerian Navy to promote maritime security cooperation.
Consul General Will Stevens said the arrival buttresses America’s commitment to supporting Nigeria in its efforts to secure territorial waters and the greater Gulf of Guinea (GoG).
“Cooperation and the ability to operate together in the maritime domain are necessary to enhance Nigeria’s capacity to counter piracy, oil bunkering, illegal fishing, and other sea-based illicit activities”, Stevens noted
