Pirates Attacked another Vessel off Nigeria coast

By Piracy

Pirates have boarded another vessel 2 days ago off the coast of Nigeria’s oil region, a piracy watchdog reported on Tuesday, the latest in a string of pirate attacks close to the biggest energy producer of Africa.
The pirate attack occurred off the coast of the Brass oil region on Sunday, told in a piracy report the International Maritime Bureau (IMB).
There were also reports that an unknown number of foreigners were kidnapped in the attack on the Armadah Tuah ship, according to maritime-risk exports AKE.
The Navy Officials of Nigeria didn't respond to requests for comment.
“If the information is confirmed, the pirate attack would be the 3rd offshore kidnapping in the region in 10 days, following the attacks on the general cargo ship Esther C and the tug boat Walvis 7 on the 7th of February and 10th of February, 2013 respectively,” AKE informed in a security report.
In another pirate attack on Sunday, robbers in a small wooden ship boarded a vessel anchored at the port of Lagos and stole the stores kept on the vessel before leaving.
