NIGERIAN NAVY SET TO ACQUIRE NEW PORTUGUESE-BUILT WARSHIPS?






According to an article published online on 2 January 2011 by the “Portuguese Aerospace and Defence Update”, the burgeoning fortunes of the hitherto long-neglected Nigerian Navy look set to receive an additional massive boost with talks said to have reached an advanced stage for the acquisition of two “Viana do Castelo Class” 83.10 metre, 1850 ton Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) by the Nigerian Navy.
The report by the Portuguese Aerospace and Defence Update stated that “negotiations are being carried at an advanced stage to sell two NPO vessels to oil-rich Nigeria.” NPO (Navio de Patrulha Oceânica) is the Portuguese description of what the English-speaking world know as an OPV.
Built by the Portuguese shipbuilder Estaleiros Navais de Viana do Castelo SA, the first of the “Viana do Castelo Class” of OPVs was commissioned into Portuguese Navy service on the 30th of December 2010 and ships of the class are intended to “progressively replace João Coutinho class and Baptista de Andrade class corvettes.
If these reported Nigerian naval acquisitions are carried through to fruition, as is almost certainly going to be the case in the light of the FY 2011 budgetary allocation for the procurement of two OPVs , as contained in a February 2011 release published by the Budget Office of the Federation of Nigeria, the Nigerian Navy will become the first export customer for the “Viana do Castelo class” OPVs.
The large corvette-sized, Portuguese-built OPVs would be the largest brand-new ships acquired by the Nigerian Navy since the 1980s. During the Presidential Review of the Nigerian Naval fleet held to mark the Golden Jubilee of Nigerian independence late last year, President Goodluck Jonathan apologised for the unpardonable neglect of the Nigerian Navy by previous administrations and promised to redress the unacceptable situation. Following swiftly on the heels of that public declaration, capital ships have been acquired and orders for capital ships have been placed for the benefit of the Nigerian Navy.
The report carried by the “Portuguese Aerospace and Defence Update” further stated that the OPVs boast a “top speed of 21 knots, range of 5,000 nautical miles and are manned by a 38-man crew.
Armament consists of a “40mm L/60 turreted gun and provisions for two manned mounts to be armed with 7.62mm light machine guns as well as two launching systems for MK55 Mod 2 mines”. The ships are expected to be capable of operating unmanned systems and are “equipped with a single Sagem SA Vigy 10 MKIII naval surveillance and observation platform, three water cannons, two rigid inflatable boats from Delta Power Group”. Each ship is capable of accommodating a Super Lynx MK95 light helicopter.
At the time of filing this report, the Obama administration had also transferred a large, Hamilton-class 3,250 ton ex-United States Coast Guard ship which was decommissioned in March 2011, to the Nigerian Navy. The said ship, a frigate prior to her latter-day designation as a USCG cutter, was handed over to the Nigerian Navy in May 2011 and has been christened “NNS Thunder” with the pennant number “F90″. The US Government are said to have equally given approval for the transfer of a second Hamilton-class ship, which is slated for decommissioning later this year, to the Nigerian Navy.
In April 2009, the Nigerian Navy commissioned two new Suncraft Sea Eagle Offshore Patrol Craft. They were christened NNS Zaria and NNS Burutu.
Offshore and littoral Nigeria are prone to insecurity, rated consistently by the International Maritime Organisation as one of the three deadliest territorial waters in the world, with a chequered history of pirate attacks, insurgent action, petro-terrorism, illegal fishing and acts of sabotage. The so affected Niger delta inshore and the Gulf of Guinea waters offshore play host to Africa’s biggest oil and gas industry regardless and boasts over $120 billion worth of oil industry infrastructure.
The ongoing efforts at capacity-building for the Nigerian Navy is one which many Nigerian observers of the country’s navy are likely to applaud wholeheartedly, given the volatility of the country’s maritime environment and the Gulf of Guinea at large, a vast maritime region where neighbouring countries such as Equatorial Guinea witnessed a botched seaborne invasion in February 2010 while pirate and guerrilla attacks have increasingly characterised the littoral environment of Cameroon, Nigeria’s next-door neighbour.

Nigerian soldiers receive counterinsurgency training in America to counter militants

The US Army is giving Nigerian soldiers counterinsurgency training to deal with increasingly violent militants who have killed more than 100 people over the last few days.

The UK’s Guardian newspaper reports a Nigerian military spokesman as saying that some battalions had received training in the United States and that the Nigerian army “is in the process of setting up a division that is effectively looking at warfare tactics.” The spokesman added that, “Various battalions were in the United States earlier this year for training to that end.”

The US embassy in Abuja told the Guardian that, "We have had a mil-mil relationship with the Nigerians for decades, principally supporting their peacekeeping efforts in Africa (Liberia, Sierra Leone, Darfur) and around the globe. In recent years, and at their request, we have also worked with them on their nascent counter-force. We do not know if any of these elements have been deployed in the north."

The United States has supported the Nigerian military in other ways. Nigerian Air Force pilots have trained in America and in May the Nigerian Navy took delivery of the ex-US Coast Guard cutter Chase (WHEC-718).

Boko Haram, which in the Hausa language spoken in northern Nigeria means "Western education is sinful", is loosely modelled on the Taliban. The group became active in about 2003 and is concentrated mainly in the northern Nigerian states of Yobe, Kano, Bauchi, Borno and Kaduna.

The group considers all who do not follow its strict ideology as infidels, whether they are Christian or Muslim. It demands the adoption of sharia, Islamic law, in all of Nigeria.

In July 2009, Boko Haram staged attacks in the northeastern city of Bauchi after the arrest of some of its members, and clashed with police and the army in the northern city of Maiduguri. Some 800 people were killed in five days of fighting in the two cities. Later that month, sect leader Mohammed Yusuf was captured by Nigerian security forces and shot dead in police detention some hours later.

In December 2010 the group said it was behind bombings in central Nigeria and attacks on churches in the northeast that led to the deaths of at least 86 people.

On June 16, 2011, a car bomb tore through a car park outside Nigeria's police headquarters in Abuja. The next day Boko Haram claimed responsibility for the blast, which officials said may have been the first suicide bombing in Africa's most populous country.

Rights groups say more than 250 people have been killed by Boko Haram since July 2010. On August 26 a suicide bomber struck the U.N. building in Abuja. At least 23 people were killed and 76 wounded by the bombing which gutted the ground floor and smashed almost all the windows. Boko Haram claimed responsibility on August 29, demanding the release of prisoners and an end to a security crackdown aimed at preventing more bombings.

The blast was the first known suicide bombing in Nigeria. It marked an escalation in the group's tactics and revealed an increase in the sophistication of explosives it uses.

At least 65 people were killed in the city of Damaturu and the village of Potiskum on November 4. The attacks, which included a spate of bombings in the northeastern city of Maiduguri, were some of the worst on record by the group. Nigeria's police said on Tuesday they had arrested suspected Boko Haram members behind the attacks last week.

Boko Haram is becoming a major headache for President Goodluck Jonathan's administration as it grows in sophistication and deadliness. It has twice struck the capital this year.

Efforts to make war on Boko Haram in the past have done little to quell the insurgency and heavy-handed police tactics in the northeast have radicalised youths against the state - creating a fertile breeding ground for more militancy.

Ultimately, Nigeria may have to address the poverty and sense of alienation in the remote, semi-arid north, which feels increasingly left out of the economic growth enjoyed by the oil-rich south.

A state-sponsored committee in September urged establishing a dialogue with Boko Haram, an idea reiterated Sunday by the governor of Borno, the worst affected state, Kashim Shettima.

Nigeria, a country of 150 million people split nearly evenly between Christians and Muslims, is mostly peaceful, but growing militancy in the north and violence in the ethnically and religiously mixed "Middle Belt" are an increasing worry.

NNS Thunder departs California for Nigeria



The former US Coast Guard cutter Chase has departed the United States for her new home in Nigeria. The NNS Thunder, as she is now known, was transferred to the Nigerian Navy in a formal ceremony on May 13 and underwent a refit prior to her trans-Atlantic voyage.

The Nigerian Navy Ship (NNS) Thunder left Coast Guard Island in Alameda, California, yesterday. Nigerian Minister of State and Defence Erelu Olusola Obada was present at the departure ceremony.

The Chase had been declared as surplus by the US Coast Guard, who said that donating the vessel to Nigeria had saved them US$10 million in disposal costs. The vessel was refitted and a new crew trained.

The Hamilton class High Endurance Cutter was laid down on October 26, 1966 at Avondale Shipyards in New Orleans; launched on May 20, 1967 and commissioned on March 11, 1968. The 115 m, 3250-ton cutters is armed with a 76 mm OTO Melera gun and decommissioned on March 29 this year in San Diego. She was transferred as an excess defence article under the US Foreign Assistance Act. One of her sister ships, the Morgenthau, is still based in Alameda, while another was donated to the Philippines.

The class has a crossing range of 9 600 nautical miles (17 800 km) at 20 knots (40 km/h). Top speed is 28 knots. Fitted with a 24 m flight deck – but no hangar – the ship is capable of handling a medium helicopter.

At the NNS Thunder’s renaming ceremony earlier this year Nigerian Ambassador to the US, Adebowale Adefuye, said the ship would be put to use in the Gulf of Guinea region to tackle pirates, illegal oil bunkerers, smugglers and other criminals in order to secure the nation's offshore oil wealth.

Nigeria has been strengthening its military capabilities over the years and has paid particular attention to improving security in the Niger Delta and off its 780 kilometre long coast, where it has numerous oil installations. In September Nigeria and Benin began joint anti-piracy patrols in the Gulf of Guinea.

The Nigerian Navy has received 10 donated vessels to enhance operations in the Niger Delta. The navy has also established new base in Lokoja known as NNS Lugard and another in Ikot Abasi known as NNS Jubilee.

The force is seeking government approval to acquire up to 49 ships and 42 helicopters over the next ten years to police the nation’s territorial waterways and Gulf of Guinea.

In March 2007 it signed a US$73 million contract for two ATR 42MP maritime patrol aircraft to join its Dornier 128s. The first ATR was delivered in December 2009 and the second in March last year.

NAF Gets First Female Pilot
Kaduna — The Nigerian Air Force will on Friday get its first female pilot, the Air Officer Commanding Training Command, Air Vice Marshal Ibrahim Salihu has said.

In a statement issued Tuesday in Kaduna, Salihu said Cadet Blessing Liman, following the completion of the Direct Short Service Course 20/2011,will be commissioned alongside 16 other cadets on Friday at the NAF base in Kaduna.

He said the inclusion of women in the training followed a directive by President Goodluck Jonathan.

"This is the first time since 1984, that the Nigerian Air Force would be training its cadets of the Direct Short Service Commission Course at the Base. The training of the cadets, therefore, is significant in two-folds. Firstly, it would boost the crucial aspect of manpower requirement of the Nigerian Air Force and secondly, the presidential mandate intended to foster equal participatory opportunity in the national development to all categories of the Nigerian people and gender has been fulfilled", he said.

Nigeria’s defence budget approves dozens of Navy acquisitions


Nigeria’s Navy will be receiving nearly two dozen new acquisitions under the 2012 defence budget, including two offshore patrol ships and numerous patrol craft, as it modernises and expands its military.

Nigeria’s 2012 Defence Budget Proposal makes provision for two offshore patrol vessels (N6.78 billion/US$42 million), three Shaldag Mk III fast patrol craft, three 24 metre coastal patrol craft and six 17 metre Manta Mk II ASD littoral interceptors (total cost N2.2 billion/US$13.7 million). In addition, the purchase of helicopter and ship spares will amount to N1.04 billion (US$6.5 billion), according to Budget Office documents.

The FY2011 defence budget approved the acquisition of two offshore patrol vessels, the refurbishment of six coastal patrol craft by TP Marine of Holland and the delivery of nine Manta Mk II ASD craft.

In strengthening its military capabilities, Nigeria has paid particular attention to improving security in the Niger Delta and off its 780 kilometre long coast, where it has numerous oil installations. In March 2007 it signed a US$73 million contract for two ATR 42MP maritime patrol aircraft to join its Dornier 128s. The first ATR was delivered in December 2009 and the second in March 2010.

Late last year the Nigerian Navy received the former US Coast Guard Cutter Chase (WHEC-718), which was given to the Nigerian Navy as an excess defence article under the US Foreign Assistance Act, and renamed NNS Thunder. Nigeria’s Navy is seeking government approval to acquire up to 49 ships and 42 helicopters over the next ten years to police the nation’s territorial waterways and Gulf of Guinea, according to Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Ishaya Ibrahim.

The Nigerian Navy has received 10 donated vessels to enhance operations in the Niger Delta. The navy has also established new base in Lokoja known as NNS Lugard and another in Ikot Abasi known as NNS Jubilee.

The total Nigerian federal government budget this year amounts to N4.749 trillion (US$30.64 billion), of which N921.21 billion (US$5.947 billion) has been allocated to defence and security, making it Nigeria’s largest ever defence and security budget and making the nation the largest spender in the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) bloc.

The Nigerian Army has been allocated N122 billion (US$766 million), the Navy N69 billion (US$433 million) and the Air Force N64 billion (US$402 million) this year, reports the Nigerian Budget Office. According to Nigeria Intel, the Nigerian armed forces today number around 76 000. The army is the largest arm and is given the most attention in terms of defence spending. It numbers around 60 000 personnel while the navy has about 7 000 and the air force 9 000.

Military spending in Nigeria has been increasing over the last several years as the government continues with a programme to improve professionalism within the military, combat domestic security threats, modernise its equipment and expand peacekeeping operations. In 2009 Nigeria spent US$1.864 billion on defence, US$2.112 billion in 2010 and US$2.784 billion last year.

The rapidly growing defence budget comes at a time when the country is facing rising security challenges, notably from the Boko Haram militia, who have killed hundreds of people in attacks across the country this year. According to Nigeria’s Daily Trust, billions have been allocated to Nigeria’s Police and security services, which are engaged in combating Boko Haram. The services will buy arms and ammunition, vehicles, explosives detectors and surveillance and communication equipment, amongst other items.

Nigeria approves procurement of two new offshore patrol vessels


Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan has approved the purchase of two new 1 800 ton Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) for the Nigerian Navy as the service modernises and expands.

Nigeria’s 2012 Defence Budget Proposal allocates N6.78 billion/US$42 million for the two offshore patrol vessels. The first will be built in China while about 50% of the second ship will be constructed in Nigeria in an effort to enhance local shipbuilding capability and provide technology transfer.

The OPVs will be 95 metres long, with a draft of 3.5 metres. They will be powered by two MTU 20V 4000M diesel engines, giving a speed of 21 knots, and will be armed with one 76 mm and two 30 mm guns. Crew complement will be 70 sailors and endurance 20 days. They will be able to carry and support a helicopter off a rear deck.

The Nigerian Navy (NN) announced that the vessels would mainly to be used for maritime surveillance, patrol and response tasks. Other roles of the vessels would be protection of offshore assets, Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) patrol and surveillance, search and rescue and oil spill control.

“This acquisition is expected to bolster NN presence at sea to meet the current and emerging threats,” the Navy said.

Nigeria’s Navy will be receiving nearly two dozen new acquisitions under the 2012 defence budget. The 2012 Defence Budget Proposal also makes provision for three Shaldag Mk III fast patrol craft, three 24 metre coastal patrol craft and six 17 metre Manta Mk II ASD littoral interceptors (total cost N2.2 billion/US$13.7 million). In addition, the purchase of helicopter and ship spares will amount to N1.04 billion (US$6.5 billion), according to Budget Office documents.

The FY2011 defence budget approved the acquisition of two offshore patrol vessels, the refurbishment of six coastal patrol craft by TP Marine of Holland and the delivery of nine Manta Mk II ASD craft.

French shipbuilder OCEA is building the three 24 metre coastal patrol craft and commenced sea trials of the first vessel on March 13.

The Suncraft Group is expected to construct the six Manta Mk II ASD vessels, bringing the total ordered over the last several years to 21. The Manta Mk II first entered service with the Nigerian Navy in 2008.

In strengthening its military capabilities, Nigeria has paid particular attention to improving security in the Niger Delta and off its 780 kilometre long coast, where it has numerous oil installations. In March 2007 it signed a US$73 million contract for two ATR 42MP maritime patrol aircraft to join its Dornier 128s. The first ATR was delivered in December 2009 and the second in March 2010.

Late last year the Nigerian Navy received the former US Coast Guard Cutter Chase (WHEC-718), which was given to the Nigerian Navy as an excess defence article under the US Foreign Assistance Act, and renamed NNS Thunder.

Captain Mohammed Nagemu, the Commanding Officer of NNS Thunder, said that the ship, which commenced active operations on January 23, had been involved in several naval exercises, while making several arrests.

“NNS Thunder, which has sailed 14 665 nautical miles, has so far arrested two vessels, accosted 108 vessels and carried out ‘Exercise Obangame [Express]’, along with helicopter operations,” he said. However, Nagemu pointed out several challenges facing the vessel, including a scarcity of spare parts, insufficient tools and inadequate personnel training.

Nigeria’s Navy is seeking government approval to acquire up to 49 ships and 42 helicopters over the next ten years to police the nation’s territorial waterways and Gulf of Guinea, according to Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Ishaya Ibrahim.

The Nigerian Navy has received 10 donated vessels to enhance operations in the Niger Delta. The navy has also established new base in Lokoja known as NNS Lugard and another in Ikot Abasi known as NNS Jubilee.

The Nigerian Navy has been allocated N69 billion (US$433 million) under this year’s budget while the Army has been allocated N122 billion (US$766 million), and the Air Force N64 billion (US$402 million), reports the Nigerian Budget Office. The navy has about 7 000 personnel.
