Nigeria and Denmark have met on the reported killing of pirates in the Gulf of Guinea by a Danish frigate which took place in international waters 25 to 30 nautical miles south of the Nigerian territorial boundaries.

The Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dr. Bashir Jamoh, met with the Danish Ambassador to Nigeria, His Excellency, Sune Krogstrup, in Abuja.

Dr. Jamoh assured that all stakeholders were interacting, adding that the NIMASA will continue to do everything within its powers, including collaborations, to ensure the Gulf of Guinea remains a safe place for virile maritime activities.

“Let me assure you that NIMASA is in contact with the Nigerian Navy and relevant actors, as we continue to collaborate towards a total de-confliction, not only in our waters, but also in the Gulf of Guinea,” he said.
