Navy apprehends 11 stowaways attempting to flee Nigeria illegally

The Nigerian Navy Ship BEECROFT patrol team intercepted 11 stowaways hiding on a ship bound for Ghana on Tuesday evening.

The stowaways, aged between 19 and 37, were discovered after the Navy received a tip-off from four stowaways who had been apprehended earlier.

The stowaways were unaware that the ship they had boarded was heading to Ghana. They have been handed over to the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) for further investigation.

The Navy’s arrest of the stowaways is a reminder of the critical role it plays in ensuring maritime security and preventing illegal migration.
