Lagos — The Nigerian Navy said yesterday that most high profile crimes committed within and around the country's territorial waters are done by foreigners. It added that such crimes are committed with connivance of criminally minded Nigerians, and are funded by multi-national oil companies.

Flag Officer Commanding ((FOC) Western Naval Command, Rear Admiral Ilesanmi Alade, made this disclosure while receiving Naval officers from the British Royal Navy, who paid him a courtesy call.

Admiral Alade said: 'Henceforth, when we arrest such foreigners we will hand them over to the appropriate authorities for prosecution. The responsibility for sedcuring the Nigerian maritime domain is that of the Nigerian Navy and we are poised to take total control of the waters and rid the area of any form of illegalities'.

He said though, there are private security companies that have an understanding with the Nigerian Navy to provide security on the nation's waters, some others who do not have permits to operate are doing so.
