The US convoy at Ogbaru, Anambra state, and the US Embassy have made a courtesy call to the Navy Base, Onitsha.
The US team was led by Mr. Jim Suor, regional security officer at the US Consulate in Lagos. He praised the Nigerian Navy for saving the two embassy employees who had gone missing by sending sailors to Ogbaru.
The US delegation paid a courtesy visit to the Commander of the base, Navy Captain G Osuobeni to appreciate the efforts of the Nigeria Navy for their response to the distress call and rescue of the 2 kidnapped US Embassy staff.
The head of the US team stated that the “US Government is highly appreciative of the efforts of security agencies in Anambra state particularly the efforts and supports of the Nigerian Navy.”
A team of officials from the Lagos Consulate of the United States of America and their police escorts were ambushed last week Tuesday between the hours of 12:00hours and 14:00hours, along Atani/Osamala road in Ogbaru Local Government Area (LGA) of Anambra State by unknown gunmen.
The Anambra State Government pledged its resolve to bring the perpetrators of the barbaric act to book.
