Abuja - The Nigerian Navy has shut down and proscribed three illegal merchant navy training schools.

These are Nigerian Maritime Security Agency (NMSA), Nigerian Merchant Navy Corp (NMNC) and Nigerian Merchant Navy Petroleum Security and Safety Corp (NMNPSSC).

Navy Captain Suleiman Dahun, Acting Director of Information, said these had continued to offer fake training in merchant navy duties to innocent and unsuspecting members of the public, especially young men and women.
