Pirates have kidnapped three Nigerians in an attack on an oil industry supply vessel off Nigeria, the French company operating the boat said.

The attack on the crew boat, according to AFP, took place on April 8, “off the Nigerian coast,” Bourbon said on its website.

“The three crew members of Nigerian nationality have been kidnapped,” the company said, adding an emergency unit based in Nigeria was immediately activated.

The Gulf of Guinea off West Africa has seen numerous attacks of piracy in recent years, sparking concern it is becoming a new centre of piracy in Africa.

Between January and September last year the area recorded 33 incidents of piracy and armed robbery, according to the International Maritime Bureau (IMB).

Incidents of piracy off the coast of Somalia, on the other side of the continent have, by contrast, significantly fallen in the past three years.
