Nigerian Army Intelligence Students Embark on Enlightening Tour of Western Naval Command and Operation AWATSE

In a bid to enhance the academic and professional competence of its students, the Nigerian Army Intelligence School (NAIS) organized a local study tour to the Headquarters of the Western Naval Command (WNC) and the Joint Task Force South West Operation AWATSE. The tour aimed to familiarize students with the critical role of the WNC and OP AWATSE in ensuring security in the South Western region of Nigeria and to underscore the importance of inter-service collaboration.

Led by the Acting Commandant of NAIS, Brigadier General Kingsley Nwoko, the delegation comprised students from various courses, including the Young Officers Course, Counter Intelligence Officers and Senior Non-Commissioned Officers Courses, Operative Intelligence Course, and Intermediate Intelligence Operative Course.

Upon arrival, the team was warmly received by the Flag Officer Commanding Western Naval Command, Rear Admiral MB Hassan, and briefed on the history, activities, force structure, achievements, and challenges of the operation, with a particular focus on intelligence operations. 

The students then embarked on a tour of key naval assets, including the NNS KADA, NNS EKUN, NNS CALABAR, and the Falcon Eye facility, providing them with a firsthand understanding of naval operations.

Rear Admiral Hassan expressed his pleasure in hosting the NAIS personnel, emphasizing the importance of such interactions in strengthening collaboration within the Armed Forces of Nigeria. He highlighted the mutual benefits of sharing knowledge and operational experiences between the Army and Navy.

Brigadier General Nwoko underscored the academic significance of the tour, noting that it aligns with the Chief of Army Staff's Command Philosophy. He emphasized that the tour is crucial for improving students' understanding of inter-service synergy and the effectiveness of military operations through actionable intelligence.

This tour marks a significant step in fostering a comprehensive understanding of joint military operations among future intelligence officers, ensuring they are well-equipped to contribute to the nation's security landscape.
