OBP; PIRACY AND ROBBERY AGAINST SHIPS IN THE GULF OF GUINEA: 2015

Wednesday, May 4, 2016

GoG: The Gulf of Guinea is the most dangerous region for seafarers with a rise in violence across the year and an increase in kidnap-for-ransom in the fourth quarter of 2015.

 

  • States in the Gulf of Guinea region continue to increase maritime security and cooperation, but capacity is still 

    lacking.

  • The duration of kidnap and ransom incidents is consistent with 2014 (2 and 3 weeks of captivity) however, there has been a significant increase in violence including physical abuse and mock executions in 2015.

  • Increased Nigerian law enforcement patrols have forced pirates to change their business model, and pirates have had to expand their range beyond Nigerian waters in search of targets.
