A security boat manned with Joint Task Force (JTF) Nigeria personnel was allegedly attacked by militants this morning off Brass, Nigeria. According to one of our sources, all JTF personnel were killed and their weapons taken by the militants.
“This is the second attack on a security boat in the past three days,” our source adds.
Additional gCaptain sources also indicate that the Edison Chouest-owned, US-flagged platform supply vessel [I]C-Retriever[/I] was working in a nearby field and was also attacked, an incident that our sources indicate was unrelated to the attack on the JTF personnel. Our source notes that the Captain and Chief Engineer, who are both US citizens, were kidnapped, but we have been unable to confirm.
