      The Nigerian Navy arrested nine persons, namely Binaebi Johnson, Daniel Lemmar, Ghane Gordon, Hassan Hakeem, Gregory Smith, Ofem Uket, John Mark, Chidi Amadi and Eze Amadi suspected to be members of a kidnapping syndicate, out of which the first three were convicted on 10TH August by the Federal High Court, Port Harcourt for hijacking an Equatorial Guinean flagged vessel, MV ELOBEY VI, in March this year.

      Delivering judgment, Justice Mohammed Sani summarily convicted Binaebi Johnson, Daniel Lemmar and Ghane Gordon on counts 1 and 2, ordering them to pay a N20 million fine each, while the remaining six accused were denied wrongdoing, according to TheGuardian

      They were said to have demanded a $2 million ransom out of which $200,000 was eventually paid.
