Tension As Pirate Attack Boat In Nigeria.

-By Ike Ohakwe – Abuja

Suspected pirates have attacked and hijacked a boat with an unspecified number of passengers along the Soku-Abonema waterways in the Akuku-Toru Local Government Area of Rivers State, in the South-South region of Nigeria.

It was gathered that the incident happened last Wednesday evening generating tension in the riverine communities.

The passengers were said to have been offloaded around the area and the pirate made away with the boat.

At the time of filing this story, the Chairman, of the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria, Rivers State chapter, Isreal Pepple, while confirming the incident pleaded with the governor of the state, Siminilayi Fubara, to come to the rescue of the passengers.

He simply was quoted to have said: “As we can confirm, the marine police don’t have any gunboats to operate in that area.

“The whole of Akuku-Toru and Asari-Toru, no gunboat to checkmate that area,” he said.

This incident has enveloped the waterways with tension as residents have expressed fears of attack over what they called “frequent attacks by the pirates in the area.”
