Joint-Industry Alert on Piracy in the Gulf of Guinea
16 February 2018

Two tankers have been hijacked in the last 4 weeks in the Gulf of Guinea. This, coupled with the number of attacks and kidnappings of seafarers in this region has alarmed the international shipping industry. The Round Table of Shipping Associations and OCIMF are working with the International Coordination Centre (ICC) and navies to address the security considerations. However, in response to this increased threat of hijack and kidnap in the Gulf of Guinea the international shipping industry reminds all ship owners and managers, and the seafarers operating in the area that they have a responsibility to ensure that their ships are adequately protected.
