NIGERIAN PORTS AUTHORITY SECURITY MEASURES TO PREVENT
STOAWAYS IN OUR PORTS
The rate at which Stowaways board vessels leaving our ports has become an
issue of concern. Within the last weekend alone, there were three reported
incidents. This indicates non compliance with the security measures put in place
at our ports.
The International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code) has adopted
more restrictive measures on prevention of Stowaways in Ports and Vessels. It is
necessary that these measures be adopted by all if the incidents of stowaways
must be checked.
Consequently, the following measures are to be strictly adhered to forthwith:
1. There must be exchange of Declaration of Security (DOS) between the
Ship Security Officer (SSO) and the Port Facility Security Officer (PFSO) on arrival of every vessel in port. The DoS should clearly state the duties of each party and compliance with its provision must be ensured.
2. Terminal Operators must check, identify and screen dockworkers .during
and after discharge operations. This must be implemented at the entry point as stipulated in the ISPS Code.
3. Prior to port entry all spaces not to be used during cargo operations should
be locked and sealed. An effective gangway watch must be maintained at all times. The crew should remain vigilant and challenge anyone who has no business on board or appears to be hanging around suspiciously.
4. Additional Security Guards on board at the gangway and on the seaward
side of the vessel should be re-enforced.
5. Ships staff should conduct a complete stowaway search on completion of
cargo operations and prior to departure from berth; further search should be conducted when the pilot is ready to disembark from the vessel.
6. Other measures that have proved effective and must be strictly complied
with are: • Maintain a register of people entering and exiting the vessel. • Display warning signs at the Vessel Access Points.
7. There must be combined effort of the Ports / Terminals Security Officers
(PFSO), Immigration Officers, Ship Agents/Representatives, the Ship Security Officer (SSO), NIMASA and SSS to ensure that stowaway check is conducted before a vessel sails from port. Thereafter, a certificate jointly signed by the search party will be issued to the ship.
8. Finally, the Master of any vessel found with stowaway would be held liable
CARGO DECLARATION FOR LAGOS PORT.
2.Declare total units only. i.e. 500 units of vehicle weight 698.2mts
4pkgs General Cargo weight 170mts.
3. Declare Cargo for the other port on board in transit separately.

GUIDELINES ON NARCOTICS AND CONTROLLED DRUGS
In view of this, all psychotropic substances are referred to as controlled
drugs, which are classified as narcotics, while the ordinary drugs are not
controlled because these are none hard drugs.
All ordinary medicines must be displayed in the hospital cabin or locker on
a well arranged form and should be numbered for easy and proper
It is a breach of law (offence) if any ordinary medicines is found or
detected in a mix of controlled drugs, i.e. Captain’s cabin and vice-versa.
All controlled drugs are expected to be in the custody of the captain and
not medicines referred to as ordinary medicines in order to conform with
the provision of article “30” of 1961 convention of United Nations as
referred to as international regulations
All controlled drugs must be declared in a separate list, having their
headings as controlled drugs as “Narcotic list” and for the ordinary
medicines as “hospital inventory list” or medicine chest inventory list”.
All drugs should have a well designed manufacturer stamp indicating the
expiring and manufacturing date on it. Any form of hand printing on any
medicine will be viewed as total breakdown of law and order and shall be
compelled to face the laws squarely as provided on the said article.
All expired drugs or medicines are not allowed to be sighted on board.
All records of either controlled drugs or medicines are expected to be
recorded in the medicine log book and presented for check.
On no account shall drugs be brought ashore
It should be borne in mind that the article “30” of single convention on
“narcotics drugs control’ of 1961 frowns at theft and diversion of stocks of
controlled drugs. Therefore captains are to be held responsible if there
should be any contradiction of any form.
Note: 1, Section 8 subsection b-d (S,8 (b) of NDLEA Act cap 30 laws pof
federation as amended in 2004 empowers NDLEA Officers to be:
Working in collaboration with the department of customs and excise in
monitoring the movement of drugs and persons in any custom area,
custom stations, customs ports or airports, searching cargoes and out

STANDARD OPERATION PROCEDURE FOR THE CLEARANCE OF
CREW AND PASSENGER OF SHIPS/OCEAN VESSEL
Following my meeting with ship owners and shipping agents under the aegis of shipping association of Nigeria, it has become imperative to spell out the subsisting standard operation procedure and requirements in the clearance of crew and passengers of ships /ocean vessels in order to minimise delays and facilitate immigration clearance.
2. As specified by the relevant provisions of the Immigration act.Regulations and the manual, the under listed documents must be made available to enable Immigration operatives commence clearance.
i. The crew manifest of the ship / vessels
ii. Passengers manifest (if it is applicable)
iii. Evidence of last port of call and next portof call
vii. Arrival notice and information on berthing of vessel must be made available to Immigration operatives well in advance with adquate preparations by the shipping agents for boarding and clearance.
3. In addition, the attached guideline is to facilitate clearance and mitigate areas of friction between Immigration officers operating at the ports and the shipping line agents.It is expected that you will seek further clarification and directives from the Comptroller General when you are not too clear as to the appropriate course of action, please.
GUIDE LINES ON IMMIGRATION CLEARANCE OF CREW &
Section 52 (i)of the Immigration Act Chapter 171 laws of the Federation of Nigeria 1990 defines crew thus: “crew in relation to a ship means all persons actually employed in the working or service of the ship including the master of the ship and “member of the crew” shall be contrued accordingly “.The interpretation of this section is that a crew member is any person in the employment of the ship including the captain of the ship.Therefore any other person on board a ship not working for the ship is not a crew member but a passenger.
2. From the above and other relevant provisions of the Immigration Act it is obvious that any person working in a ship is a crew member and all crew members on board a ship, whether they intend to go ashore or not, must submit themselves to an Immigration officer for Immigration clearance. Any person on board a ship who who is not a crew member will be treated as a passenger and therefore must be in possession of a valid passport and valid visa if he or she desires to disembark.
3. In the same light the following persons are treated as specified below:
(i) A Cadet who has a valid seaman book is a crew member.He need not have a valid passport .He must however be properly identified as a cadet attached to the vessel.
ii. A supernumerary is not a crew member.He or she is expected to possess a valid passport and in addition requires a visa only if he/she desires to go ashore.
iii. A super cargo is a crew member by the provision of section 51 (1) of the Immigration act.He must possess a seaman book.He must also be examined by an Immigration officer as specified at section 26 (1) of the Immigration act.
iv. A superintendent Engineer is a crew member by the defination of section 51 (1) of the Immigration act, so he also must possess a valid seaman’s book whether or not he disembarks is immaterial. He is expected to submit himself for examination before an Immigration officer in accordiance with section 26 (1) of the Immigration act.
4. That any person who arrives a port in Nigeria as a stowaway or attemting to stowaway shall be treated as prohibited immigrant and should not be admitted into Nigeria and the cost of repatriation of such a person from Nigeria be borne by the owner or the shipping agent.
5. Any crew member joining ship in Nigeria is expected to be in possession of the following:
i. Letter from the Agents of the vessel confirming that he is joining a vessel in a Nigeria port.
Similarly no crew member who is a citizen of Ngeria shall be discharged in Nigeria without the consent of the Immigration authorities.Such crew member will obtain transit permit on disembarkation from the vessel to enable him join his flight out the country.
6. That all vessel that bring prohibited immigrant (which include passengers without visa) into the country shall be liable to pay a carrier liability fine of US $2000 per such number of passengers so declared as prohibited or refused entry.
7. For all practical purpose and in accordiance with the Immigration mannual, when an Immigration officer boards a vessel for clearance,he is expected to ask for the crew list and the seaman book for examination .When the documents are produced there may not be further need to request for contact papers .He will then request the captain of the vessel to ask all crew members to come out of their cabins for Immigration clearance one after the other.If in the process a crew member is found without a seaman book or valid passport he will be regarded as a prohibited immigrant and adequate sanctions meted out against him.
8. Crew members working on coaster vessels that remain in Nigeria territorial waters for more than 90 days are expected to arrive with STR and get Regularized
