Pirates Again Attack AGIP Tugboat

From Segun James in Yenagoa.New

Barely 48 hours after policeman escorting a boat belonging to the Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC) were killed by suspected pirates along the creeks of the Niger delta, another boat belonging to the company was once again attacked by gunmen on Sunday.

As at press time there was no word on possible casualties.

The boat was also conveying oil equipment to the Brass oil terminal and tank farm, the largest oil facility in the country, when it came under attack. Like that of Friday, the  incident occurred in broad daylight about 10am.

The captain of the tugboat identified as Famous Abrakata was reportedly abducted and whisked away to an unknown location even as sources refused to disclose the fate of the security operatives aboard the vessel.
