The work analysed the navy’s and coastguards’ maritime protection policies in order to assess the spatial coverage of the gained maritime territory under the current exclusive economic zone legal regime. The evaluation variables include the state’s coastal resources, such as renewable resources like fish and nonrenewable underwater resources like oil. The freedom fields, such as maritime traffic, pipelines, underwater cables, and air traffic, are among the others. To evaluate the level of protection, regression analytical tools were used during the study. Based on the research results, recommendations for improving the quality of protection in the region were made. As part of Nigeria’s maritime protection policy, the concepts of sea base and sea shield were studied. The two systems of sea shield and sea bases were used to examine documented maritime security problems in the region. Then, for the good of the whole system, further recommendations were made. For the world’s most advanced nations engaged in anti-piracy activities in the world’s maritime realms, a re-engineering of the new logistics operations approach was proposed. The superiority of security forces of countries engaged in anti-piracy operations was stressed. It was determined that mixing sea and air logistics would yield superior maritime results.
