Pirates kidnapped eight persons from a passenger boat, travelling to Port Harcourt, Nigeria.

The passengers were abducted on July 19, with the Rivers State Chairman, Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria, Jonah Jumbo, appealing to the abductors to release them unconditionally. However, he called on the state government and security agencies to intervene immediately.

As far as the incident is concerned, the Kula unit and Abomema unit were asked to come for a meeting in the state office here in Port Harcourt.

On their way from Kula, a report was filed that the officials who were coming for the meeting were kidnapped.
