More On the Nigerian Navy .

One of the ways to access and rate the growth of a nation is in how secure the country is. A country without the security of her people is not a good country. Therefore, security plays a vital and crucial role in the prosperity of a nation. A nation without security is not a good place for business, foreigner partnership is approximately impossible because no man is ready to risk his life in the name of making money.

To ensure a well secure country where all can exercise their human right (right to movement, life, speech etc) there we are series of security personnel who under normal circumstances should enforce that all citizen is save in term of lives and property. Some of these security agencies are Nigeria Armed Forces ( Soldier, Airforce, Navy), Nigerian Police, Civil Defence, and so on.

In this article, we shall closely examine the navy aspect of the Nigerian Armed Forces.


The Nigeria Navy is a division of Nigerian Armed Forces. This force is part of the biggest forces in the African Continent which is made up of thousands of personnel plus those of the coast guard. The Nigerian Navy was formed from the Nigerian marine after the amalgamation of the southern and northern protectorate in 1914.

Then, their function was basically to be in charge of the ports and harbours, channel dredging, lighting and voyage. In 1959 July, the Nigerian Naval Force was changed and permitted to function as a naval force. As a result, Queen Elizabeth II allows the force to be called ” The Royal Nigerian Navy”. The name was finally changed to “The Nigerian Navy” which its called today after Nigeria becomes a republic state in 1963.


This aspect of the Armed forces is created to fill some vacuum in the Nation’s security and part of them include;

1. Defence Against Foreign Attacks:

It is quite obvious that the primary function of any nation’s Navy is to defend and ensure the safety of her country. In the same scenario, the main function of the Nigerian Navy is to protect the Nigerian country against any threat within its territory.

Nigeria is blessed with large bodies of water and this form her boundaries, of which pirates, militants can launch an attack through those water channels. The Nigeria Navy, therefore, protect the nation from such attacks. Based on this responsibility, the Navies generally are termed “the water Armies”.

Due to several years of government negligence on the Nigerian naval, this has render the Nigerian Navy handicap and inactive in the area of water patrols and adequate surveillance. Therefore, crime done on the water way becomes the order of the day such as Smuggling, oil bunkering, kidnapping and militancy becomes the major problem bedeviling the riverine area of the country. This activities prompted the plan for revolution and re-emerging of this aspect of the Nigerian Navy.

This has led to the procurement of military equipment and armaments for its empowerment. The following equipment was gotten;

The Nigerian Navy has six ocean fast patriot boats and ten small boats which were commissioned on 3rd of September, 2018. Earlier, 7 units of FPB were procured for the Nigerian Navy. In summary, the Nigerian Navy has six ocean fast patriot boat, ten small boats, and 7 FPB boats. According to wikipedia.
