In Lagos now is the British Royal Navy cruiser HMS Trent.
As part of its mission to assist British allies and partners in the fight against piracy, trafficking, and other illicit activities in the West Africa region, the warship is making her second visit to Nigeria.
According to Ndidiamaka Eze, the British High Commission’s Senior Press and Public Affairs Officer, the visit would aid in delivering capacity training and support maritime security in the region.
The only reason the warship is in Nigeria, as far as Eze can tell, is to help West African nations improve their abilities to combat unlawful crimes.
“This deployment shows how a truly Global Britain is stepping up on the world stage to tackle shared international security challenges,” Jonny Baxter, the British deputy high commissioner in Lagos, said.
The United Kingdom regards Nigeria as a vital and valuable defense partner in West Africa. We want to engage with Nigeria to improve marine security in the Gulf of Guinea since our countries confront many of the same threats.
