ABSTRACT


The purpose of the study was to establish whether Private Maritime Security Companies (PMSCs) in Nigeria was a solution to armed robbery at sea in Nigerian waters. The Private Maritime Security Companies in Nigeria operated under rules set by the Nigerian Navy being the main custodian of maritime security in Nigeria. Although attempts were made to subvert those rules, the Navy has risen to clamp down on defaulters. It was found that what obtained in Nigerian waters was armed robbery at sea contrary to the widely used term piracy. The study also found that although PMSCs have not recorded any successful armed robbery attack on vessels or platforms they secured in Nigerian waters, the solutions to armed robbery at sea were infrastructural development based and employment related. The findings may be useful in proffering land based solutions to armed robbery at sea in Nigerian waters rather than resorting to securitization.
