The ship made sudden evasive maneuvers to dodge!
It was understood that the sea bandits attacked the product tanker Sea Phantom 115 nautical miles off Cameroon, but the chase took up to 90 miles as the waves created by the ship's sudden maneuvers put the small pirate boats in a difficult situation.
Although the pirates managed to board the ship 90 nautical miles offshore, they did not have enough time to force the crew out of the sheltered area as the ship was sailing rapidly towards the safe zone.
It was announced that the pirate group, which was stated to be 8 persons, was not successful, with the crew waiting safely in the sheltered area.
It was stated that the ship had safely reached Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, as of February 7.
