Greek suezmax Cap Theodora is chased by a pirates gang, Second attack.
Greek suezmax tanker Cap Theodora was attacked second time in less than a
week in Gulf of Guinea, probably by the same mob. On Apr 22 13 at about
06:55 LT vessel which was under way was approached by a speed boat with
some 5-6 pirates in it, in position 03 10N 007 14E. Pirates tried to board
tanker, but like the first attack, failed, thwarted by water protection and
maneuvering. A fishing trawler was spotted nearby, apparently a mother
ship, with red hull and white superstructure. The scheme of attack and
other things strongly suggest tanker was attacked by the same mob. Vessel
continued voyage, no injures reported.
