The Federal Government has contracted an Israeli firm to handle the security of the nation’s waterways and maritime facilities and train personnel.

The Minister of Transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, disclosed this on Monday in a keynote address at the 2017 World Maritime Day in Lagos.

The minister said the government had engaged the firm for three years to adequately train Nigerian personnel on the security of the sector, after which it would hand over the operation to Nigerians.
