Nigerian Pirate involved in Dutch Ship Hijacking Arrested in South Africa


A 29 year-old Nigerian pirate linked to the Dutch-flagged freight ship hijack in 2018, has been arrested in South Africa and handed over to Dutch authorities.

The identity of the suspect was not released, but it was learnt that he has already been handed a two weeks jail sentence as investigation continues.

The Nigerian man who was arrested late last year in South Africa and flown to the Netherlands on Thursday December 5, was accused of being one of the pirates who hijacked the FWN Rapide which was sailing under a Dutch flag in April last year off the coast of western Africa.
