From Reuters -

Shipping company Trico Marine Services said on Wednesday four foreign workers were kidnapped from one its supply vessels off Nigeria.

The head of Trico Marine's Norwegian subsidiary told Reuters that two Norwegians and two Ukrainians were abducted.

"We will not come out with more information than that four of our crew were taken from a ship off Nigeria," Managing Director Bjoern Endresen told Reuters.

He said no demands had been made.


It's about time the Nigerians started doing something about this.

Ahoy Rushie,
This is going on for ages,all hands on deck when anchored in that area.Most vessels had arms[ordinary rifles] on board to protect them against those "monkeys".
Btw the vessel was the Northern Comrade, here seen in better times.

We had the same problem last year. It has to be the most corrupt country on the planet. We had a portable generator stolen from the yard, a few days later one of our supply boats coming past Port Harcourt had to much of a stern wake it made a barge rock and roll dumping a generator into the river. We had to salvage it and buy the Nigerian owner a new replacement. Not bad as this was the one we had stolen in the first place
