Increased Threat to Shipping 01-230921





INCREASED THREAT TO SHIPPING

 

Event: Report of increased threat to shipping 

 

Date: 23 September 2021

 

Description: MDAT-GoG have released an advisory stating that there is an increased threat to shipping in the EEZs of Nigeria, Benin and Togo (Zone E in the Gulf of Guinea) in the next
24-48 hours, with pirates possibly employing a mothership to support their actions.

 

ARC Comment: There has been a lull in piracy attacks in West Africa since July. The cause for this is likely due to a combination of number of factors, however generally there is an increase
in attacks in the region in the last 3 months of the year. Vessels should increase security onboard throughout the region and report any suspicious activity to assist in awareness to other vessels.
