Reporting indicates that the cargo vessels VICTORY C and MARMALAITA have been boarded when anchored at the entry of Wouri river, Douala anchorage, Cameroon. Currently the number of perpetrators is unknown however reporting suggests all were armed with AK47.
A distress signal was sent, however it is unclear from which vessel. It is believed that a Cameroonian Naval vessel attended the scene to support the vessels under attack.
On arrival at the scene it was discovered that a number of crew members were unaccounted for from both vessels. Missing persons are presumed kidnapped.
