Nigeria

It has been reported that a cargo vessel was attacked by four speed boats with armed men embarked near Parrot Island, Calabar river. Four crew members of Cameroonian nationality and one Nigerian passenger were kidnapped.

 

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.
