Chemical tanker SP Atlanta was hijacked on Aug 11 13, on Lagos outer anchorage. Contact with the vessel was lost until late Aug 13, reported Reuters. According to AIS track, pirates took vessel off the coast to the sea and most probably, stole the cargo, oil products. Vessel was released late on Aug 13, with reportedly, unharmed crew. As of morning Aug 15 tanker was anchored on Lagos outer anchorage. Nigerian Navy and Coast guard can’t provide safety even in anchorage areas of Nigerian ports, if that’s any news.
