A report has been issued stating that a tanker has been attacked approximately 21nm south west off Bonny. The pirates managed to board the vessel and steal the crew's personal belongings, it has also been reported that three crew members have been kidnapped. The Nigerian Navy have escorted the vessel to Bonny Anchorage.

  

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.
