Cargo ship was attacked at 0420 UTC Nov 17 in Gulf of Guinea some 60 nm due south from Lome Togo. The ship wasn’t identified, but according to tracks of the ships in the area, it is most probably, Aframax tanker SKS DONGGANG (IMO 9461855), en route from Namibia to Lagos Nigeria. If it’s SKS DONGGANG, she may well escape, or so it looks from her track, meaning she escaped boarding. Awaiting ship’s ID confirmation, more details.
