The exercise named ‘Oban game Express’ includes 33 partner nations, as well as the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS).
The exercise will test each nation’s ability to patrol their economic zones, detect and prosecute illegal activity. Sierra Leone’s Joint Maritime Committee will exercise anti-smuggling and anti-piracy operations during the exercise.
