SecPro and Composites Solutions to equip President Buhari's close security guards
The Nigerian presidency is not free of the threat posed by the deteriorating security situation in the country.
Nigeria's Proforce Defence has supplied the government with light armoured vehicles to beef up security in the Niger Delta as part of the huge Deep Blue project. The deal is a concession of sorts by Israeli firm HLSI-Blue Octagon to Abuja and Nigeria's emerging defence industry.
The Naples-based naval maintenance specialist Eligroup will deliver three refitted patrol boats to the Nigerian Navy and safety agency NIMASA this summer. It is a small consolation for Italy's defence industry against Israeli Blue Octagon, the architect of the vast maritime security project Deep Blue.
Ocean Marine Solutions (OMS), a firm owned by an ally of the former president Goodluck Jonathan, is continuing to conduct its piracy surveillance operations off the coast of Lagos, despite the government's decision to terminate its contract in February.
