The Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency has donated equipment to security agencies in Cross River to aid the fight against criminality in the state.

The equipment included handcuffs, two-way radio system, tasers, flashlights, batons, body scanners, vehicle search mirrors and other personal protective equipment.

This was done during a one-day sensitization workshop with security agencies in the state. It was organized in collaboration with the Cross River State Emergency Management Agency.

Speaking during the interactive session, the Director General, NIMASA, Dr. Bashir Jamoh, said the idea for the collaboration was birthed after discovering that criminal activities in the maritime space were hatched on land.

According to a statement by Assistant Director, Public Relations, NIMASA, Osagie Edward, the DG was represented at the programme by the Head of Procurement, Mr. Danjuma Babah.

“The maritime sector is the gateway to economic prosperity in the country, more so as the Federal Government is looking towards diversification through the blue economy mantra. Therefore, there is a need for the various security agencies to collaborate with one another to ensure the safety and security of the sector are guaranteed, as this will encourage more investment in the sector,” the NIMASA DG  said.
