Nigeria's Warship Heads to Gambia

Nigeria’s newest warship, the NNS Unity, is currently enroute Gambia ahead of possible military intervention over President Yahya Jammeh's refusal to accept election defeat.

BBC reports that according to a Nigerian Military source, the patrol vessel is currently sailing off the coast of Ghana after leaving from the commercial caiptal, Lagos.

The initial aim is to put on a show of force rather than to launch an attack.
