LATC Marine denies reports of pirate attack offshore Nigeria

Following reports on Wednesday that an offshore vessel had been attacked offshore Nigeria  ,the vessel owner denies any such thing happened.

To remind, Asket.co.uk on Wednesday reported that the MV Chilosco vessel had reportedly been attacked some 31 nautical miles south of Brass, Nigeria on Tuesday, December 13.

Offshore Energy Today has reached out to the vessel owner L.A.T.C Marine in Nigeria, seeking more info on the alleged attack.

This is the company’s response: “We have received several enquiries on this issue over the last 48 hours and can confirm that no such incident has occurred on board our vessel. As a matter of fact, the vessel is currently at Onne and off-hire at the moment and was never in transit as some of these reports have claimed.”

“We are working to get to the bottom of this in order to understand the reason for these false reports…”
