HMS Trent, a British Navy ship, has arrived in Lagos, Nigeria, for the second time.
The Daily Stand gathered that the British ship was here as part of its mission in West Africa to help fight piracy, trafficking, and other crimes.
The British High Commission, represented by Ndidiamaka Eze, says this visit is important for training and improving maritime security in the region.
Eze also mentioned that the main goal of HMS Trent in Nigeria is to assist West African countries in fighting these illegal activities and making the region safer.
British Deputy High Commissioner in Lagos, Jonny Baxter, said: “This deployment demonstrates how a truly Global Britain is stepping up on the world stage to tackle shared international security challenges.
”Nigeria is an important and valued defence partner for the UK in West Africa. Our two countries face many shared threats and we are keen to work with Nigeria to defeat these and to help improve maritime security in the Gulf of Guinea.”
