Five crew members, including Sri Lankans were kidnapped in an attack by pirates off Nigeria, the latest in a series in the oil-rich Gulf of Guinea, according to a report obtained from the International Maritime Bureau (IMB).

The IMB said the container ship was targeted by 14 pirates on April 25 off Nigeria’s Bayelsa State. The kidnapped crew members came from Sri Lanka, Russia and Myanmar.

The attack followed the previous day’s raid on another container ship, which managed to escaped the pirates attempting to seize the vessel in a speed boat off Nigeria, the IMB said.(Xinhua)

    The pirates don't realize what they've captured. Soon they'll be begging, even paying, us to take the sailors back

    Which security company was in charge of the vessel. Russia, Sri Lanka or Myanmar?

    Sooner the sri lankans, would join the pirates, as you do not need electricity for pirating during the nights.

    This is a false report. There were no Lankans in the ship.
