At around 19:00ZHrs in position 00°56S / 016°49W, as she was about to enter the VRA, a merchant vessel was contacted by phone by a man pretending to be an agent. He tried to have the track planned by the vessel in the VRA and pretended as well that it was planned to create a convoy in VRA in order to escort the merchant ships up to and to set up there a meeting point 150Nm off Bonny - NIGERIA.
