Event: Vessel Hijack

 

Rivers State, Nigeria     

It has been reported that a passenger boat was ambushed by armed pirates whilst underway in Bonny River 0.3nm Southeast of Trapukiri. The pirates stole the passenger’s valuables and took the boat, leaving the passengers abandoned in the swamp.

 

Vessels within a 100 nautical mile radius should increase their anti-piracy deterrents in line with Best Management Practices 4. This should include increased twenty four hour anti-piracy watch keeping and radar monitoring. Vessel hardening should be checked and where appropriate bolstered.
