Nigerian Navy Warns Criminals to Leave Operational Areas or Face Consequences

The Nigerian Navy Ship Delta commander, Commodore Abba Muhsin, issued a stern warning to criminals operating in the command's areas of operation during a quarterly route march in Warri on Saturday. Muhsin led officers and ratings in the exercise, which began at the Warri Naval Base and covered Okere Road, Airport Road, and the NPA expressway.

During the march, Muhsin emphasized that the NNS Delta's areas of operation are not a haven for criminal activities. He urged wrongdoers to leave peacefully to allow law-abiding citizens to conduct their legitimate businesses without fear. "The NNS Delta Areas of Operation are not for criminals and they should leave peacefully before the law catches up with them," Muhsin stated.

The route march exercise was aimed at showcasing the Navy's readiness, physical fitness, and the true military spirit of its personnel. Muhsin explained that the march represents the core values of the Nigerian Navy, including teamwork, professionalism, and integrity. It also serves to revive the personnel's conduct, endurance, and collective abilities to fulfill their mandates from the federal government.

Why this matters: The Nigerian Navy's warning to criminals in its operational areas highlights the importance of maintaining security and stability in the region. By demonstrating its readiness and capabilities through exercises like the route march, the Navy sends a strong message that it is prepared to confront and combat criminal activities, ensuring a safer environment for law-abiding citizens to conduct their daily lives and businesses.

Muhsin expressed gratitude for the civil-military rapport with the local community, particularly the residents of Warri, and thanked them for their support. He also urged Navy personnel to be cautious in their social media usage and stay out of trouble. The Nigerian Navy remains committed to tracking down and bringing the full force of the law against any criminals who choose to ignore the warning and continue their illegal activities in the NNS Delta's areas of operation.
