IMB reports ‘possible hijack’ of Greek tanker off Ghana

A Greek tanker with 24 crew aboard is believed to have been hijacked off Ghana in the Gulf of Guinea, the International Maritime Bureau said on Friday.

The Liberia-flagged MT Fair Artemis lost contact with its owners on Wednesday off Ghana’s capital Accra, IMB’s Kuala Lumpur-based Piracy Reporting Center said.

The center’s head Noel Choong said while the fate of the crew and vessel, transporting gas oil, were still unknown, it was a “possible hijack.”
