OPINION: The Warships That Arrived Nigeria Yesterday, See The Possible Reasons Why They Were Brought

The menace of these bandits is getting residents worried. It’s been a period of incessant bloodshed by unknown gunmen and probably the arrival of these warships would help in putting an end to this.

Yesterday, a video of two warships arriving in Nigeria via the Apapa harbor went viral. The video elicited conflicting comments online, with many people questioning its importance. Security organizations deploy warships, which are specially designed ships for fighting. During a military operation, it is mostly utilized to transport guns and various types of ammunition.

We don’t need a soothsayer to tell us that our country is currently faced with security challenges.

Many people have lost their loved ones, many have been rendered homeless in their hometowns.

However, after some moments of deliberation, I drafted out five possible reasons why these warships were brought to Nigeria.

1) To combat Boko Haram:

For more than a decade, Nigeria has been faced with the menace of Boko Haram, the faceless enemy of peace. It all started with a campaign against western education and escalated to ceaseless bombing, destruction of lives and properties. Boko Haram has stated on several occasions that they would do all they can to take siege of more communities and I believe that the arrival of warships coupled with aircraft which are already put in place, would create more fears for Boko Haram and force them to surrender.

2) To deal with pipeline vandals:

The vandalization of oil pipelines is something that has been common in some places in the country. People do go about bursting pipelines because they want to steal crude oil and other petroleum products. These pipeline vandals in most cases aren’t concerned about the risk they are taken and the possible hazards their actions would yield to. The stealing of crude oil and other petroleum products might be due to insufficient security in regions where pipelines are laid, and probably the arrival of warships could signal the end of pipeline vandalization.

3) To protect sea borders from intruders:

Aside from paying attention to land borders, another thing that seriously needs urgent attention is the sea borders. Many people do come in illegally with illegal items and possibly those perpetrating evil do get supplied weapons from borders that are less secure. With the arrival of these warships, these bad guys and intruders would surely be on the run.

4) To tackle the menace of unknown gunmen In the South:

The Southern region for some time now has been faced with security challenges following the prison break and attacks on security agencies. Lives have been lost and properties destroyed as a result of the growing tension and the arrival of these warships would surely help in curtailing the menace of these unknown gunmen.

5) To put an end to banditry in the North:

Another challenge the country is facing in the Northern region is banditry, kidnapping is on the increase, people are now afraid to go to their own farms for fear of being abducted by bandits. The menace of these bandits is getting residents worried. It’s been a period of incessant bloodshed by unknown gunmen and probably the arrival of these warships would help in putting an end to this.
