NNS Dorina and NNS Zaria Train With French Navy

November 27, 2020 (Google Translation) – On Saturday, November 21 off the Nigerian coast, the Surveillance Frigate (FS) Ventôse and its crew, on patrol in the Gulf of Guinea, carried out several interactions with two units of the Nigerian Navy: the Nigeria Navy ship (NNS) Zaria and the NNS Dorina.

During their joint patrol in the Nigerian maritime approaches, the French and Nigerian ships first conducted a tactical evolution exercise, followed by a winching exercise using the Alouette III helicopter on board the Ventôse .

At the end of these interactions, the Nigerians expressed their satisfaction at having strengthened their interoperability with the French Navy and at having been able to train in an area where the risk of piracy is very high. Technical interoperability and good mutual understanding between partner navies are necessary to effectively contribute to the preservation of maritime security in the region.
