Nigeria

A report has been released stating that gunmen suspected to be militants ambushed a Joint Task Force gunboat killing four soldiers and one civilian in the Letugbene waterways, Bayelsa State. The gunmen managed to overpower the soldiers, seize their weapons and move them to a location in the creeks where they were killed.

 

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.
