A group of armed men has attacked the FPSO Sendje Berge some 30 nautical miles southwest from Bonny Island, according to the latest reports from security intel firm Dryad Global.
Based on the ‘high confidence’ report, it appears that 11 crew members of the FPSO have been kidnapped.
” It is assessed that this attack is unique within the wider realm of off shore incidents within West Africa. Both the manner of attack and target are beyond the usual targeting and attack methodology of pirate action groups within Nigeria. Reports indicated that explosives were used during the attack,” Dryad said.
