The two Nigerian Navy ships, the frigate NNS ARADU and patrol vessel NNS NWAMBA arrived in the Brazilian port of Recife on Saturday after a successful crossing of the Atlantic.

En route the ships crossed the Equator, a first for many of the sailors on board the warships.

After a short visit to Recife the two ships sailed again yesterday (Monday) for Rio de Janeiro to take part in Brazilís Bi-Centennial celebrations along with ships of 45 other navies. A South African frigate, SAS MENDI is also expected in the port to take part.
