6 Turkish Sailors Kidnapped off Nigeria Coast Freed

by on April 26, 2016

Six Turkish sailors abducted early this month from aboard their vessel off the coast of Nigeria have been released unhurt, a maritime consultancy firm said Tuesday.

Pirates attacked the merchant tanker used for crude oil operations on April 11 while it was steaming through the oil-rich Niger Delta and seized the sailors, including the captain.

Dirk Steffen, director of maritime security at the Denmark-based Risk Intelligence firm, told AFP the abducted men had been freed and that they were in “good health”.
