Four Crew Members Kidnapped Off Nigeria

Four crew members have been kidnapped off Nigeria’s coast from an Italian platform supply vessel.

Armed pirates have attecked the vessel MV Asso Ventuno, operated by Naples-based Augusta Offshore, on Sunday evening about 40 miles (65 km) off the coast of Nigeria’s Bayelsa state.

“Pirates armed with guns attacked, boarded an offshore supply vessel and kidnapped four crew members,” the International Maritime Bureau Piracy Reporting Centre said.

According to the Centre, the vessel continued passage to a safe port as there were no injuries to the crew.
