(Reuters) – Pirates
boarded a container ship
off the coast of Nigeria,
seizing 11 crew including eight from Poland, the vessel’s
management firm and Polish state media reported.
The attackers struck the MV Pomerania Sky, bound for the
Nigerian port of Onne, early on Saturday and abducted 11
of the crew, Midocean (IOM) Ltd said in a statement on
Sunday. The firm added that nine others remained on
board and were unharmed.
“Our priority is securing the earliest release of the 11 crew
who have been taken and we are working closely with our
partners and the local authorities to achieve that,”
Midocean said.
“The families of those crew members taken are being kept
informed of the situation,” said the company. It added the
vessel had proceeded to safe waters.
A Nigerian navy spokesman said they had begun an
investigation and search and rescue operation as soon as
the incident was reported, and would provide an update
soon.
Midocean declined to say where the kidnapped crew
members were from, but Polish state media, citing Foreign
Minister Jacek Czaputowicz, said eight of them were from
Poland.
The nationality of the three other abducted crew members
was not immediately clear.
