More than a month after their abduction, the crew of the Monjasa Reformer was released.
The Monjasa Reformer, a Liberia flagged oil tanker, had six of her crew abducted. The ship was attacked on 25 March and located on 30 March.
Six of the sixteen crew members were kidnapped and negotiations were ongoing. The six sailors left were released on May 8 from an undisclosed location in Nigeria.
In a statement, Monjasa CEO Anders Ostergaard expressed relief, stating, “All recovered crew members are in relatively good health considering the challenging circumstances they endured over the past five weeks and more.” No information on the terms of the negotiation was provided.
