Pirates kidnap three from ‘Prince Joseph 1’ vessel in Nigeria

Offshore supply vessel Prince Joseph 1 was reportedly attacked by pirates yesterday, off the coast of Nigeria.

According to Odin.tc, gunmen with a speedboat took three crew member hostages and left. Odin.tc further reported that the vessel, owned by Awaritse Nigeria, sailed to Onne port following the attack and docked in the afternoon hours yesterday, March 4.

Awaritse Nigeria did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

The vessel is now docked in Onne port, as the data on the Marine Traffic map shows.  Onne is the main base for the offshore activity in the region, and a large number of supply-vessels call in at Onne every week.
