Must Read

The Portuguese-flagged containership Tommi Ritscher was boarded by Nigerian Special Forces after it was attacked. Eleven crew members had fled to the citadel after the ship was attacked by pirates and have been rescued by the special forces. The maritime security firm Dryad Global reported that there has been no update on eight crew members who they believe are currently being held hostage. It is unclear if any pirates are still onboard and if they took the remaining crew members off the vessel in order to hold them for ransom. The group of pirates had boarded the ship on April 19th, and this is the second incident in the Cotonou anchorage area since the start of 2020.
