"Over the past years, the ECOWAS region, particularly in the Gulf of Guinea, has seen piracy and various other criminal acts" Salamatu Hussaini Suleiman, ECOWAS commissioner for political affairs, peace and security, told Anadolu Agency
"The recent increase in the number of successful hijackings is a cause for concern" IMB Director, Pottengal Mukundan said, adding these serious attacks have so far targeted small coastal tankers
