By Olorunleke Oluwapelumi

The  Nigerian Navy has denied  the alleged hijack of a Palau flagged  tanker, MT APECUS, off the coast of Bonny, Nigeria, by suspected pirates. The vessel was alleged to have been hijacked on 19 April, 2019 with seven crew members comprising five Indian nationals and two Nigerians.

Though the five Indians were later released by the pirates, Nigerian Navy’s investigation indicate that the hijack was not executed by pirates as claimed in the report but masterminded by a criminal syndicate operating the vessel.
