Six crew members from a German container vessel have been kidnapped in Nigerian waters. A Ukrainian national was among those kidnapped.

Representative of Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry consular department Vasyl Kyrylych told this to BBC Ukraine.

According to Kyrylych, he learned this from the Consulate General in Hamburg, which referred to a German shipping company.

The Ukrainian diplomats in Germany and company representatives are trying to find out "the location of crew members of the vessel," Kyrylych specified.

Earlier, the charitable organization ‘Seamen Relief fund Asol issued a report that the Ukrainian sailor was captured by pirates off Nigeria’s coast.

According to Reuters, apart from the Ukrainian citizen, pirates kidnapped four Filipinos and one Hungarian.
