8 Nigerian pirates arrested in Ghana waters

Eight Nigerian high sea robbers have been arrested by the Eastern Naval Command of the Ghana Navy in Tema for hijacking a fuel vessel in Nigeria.
The arrest took place at about 10:30am Saturday, according to Myjoyonline.com sources.
The vessel MV Mariam was carrying about 1500 tonnes of crude oil at the time the high seas robbers hijacked it.

The robbers then turned and entered the territorial waters of Ghana but the tracking device fixed on the vessel gave them up.
According to the owner of the vessel, named only as Mr Sunday, his offshore company alerted the Ghanaian navy command to be on the lookout, leading to the arrest of the eight robbers and the vessel at Tema.
The pirates have revealed they had wanted to use the vessel to carry out an attack at an undisclosed location.
