LAGOS, July 16 (Xinhua) -- Authority of the Nigerian Navy (NN) on Saturday warned ratings not to post anything about naval operations on the social media.
Rear Admiral Victor Adedipe, the Flag Officer Commanding (FOC), Eastern Naval Command, gave the warning at NNS Jubilee Base in southern Akwa Ibom State.
"I know a good number of us belong to several groups, either family group or social group, but know what you post on social media," Adedipe said.
"There is a recent guideline on the issue of social media, please get a copy in the office and read it," the Navy chief added.
He called on the ratings to adhere to rules and regulations guiding naval operations on social media.
The naval chief said posting of naval operations on social media could help criminals to get vital information about the Navy.
Last month, the Nigerian government called on social media users to use the platforms responsibly and ethically.
