NewsRescue– Two Nigerian soldiers were killed in the volatile MEND (Movement for Emancipation of the Niger Delta) Delta region of Nigeria. The Joint Military Task Force (JTF) in the Niger Delta on Thursday confirmed the killing of two soldiers by suspected pirates along the waterways of Ikuru community in Andoni Local Government Area of Rivers.

This as two Americans were abducted from an American ship in the same region.

FoxNews: Pirates have attacked a U.S.-flagged oil platform supply vessel off the coast of Nigeria and kidnapped two Americans, a senior U.S. official tells Fox News.

The attack on the C-Retriever ship, which is owned by Louisiana-based Edison Chouest Offshore, happened early Wednesday, UK-based security firm AKE and two security sources told Reuters. The ship is around 200 feet long and was sailing near Brass, Nigeria, in the Gulf of Guinea.

“Things are definitely getting more intense here,” a source told the maritime industry news website gCaptain.

The captain and the chief engineer of the C-Retriever reportedly were the ones onboard who were kidnapped.

The West Coast of Africa is now the world’s piracy capital with free flow of ammunition, lawlessness and the endless supply of criminal terrorists in the region, under impunity as Nigeria’s government employs and pays terrorists like Tompolo to ‘secure’ the region.
