Rambo Style: How The Ghana Navy Averted A Speed Boat Pirate Attack On A Vessel In Aflao.

Crime they say doesn't pay, but somehow, people find themselves committing all sort of crimes each and every day, on both land and on water.

The Police mainly deal with these criminals on land, while on sea, both the marine police and the navy tackle them. The crimes on sea usually ranges from illegal fishing activities to piracy, the practice of attacking and robbing ships at sea.

The activities of pirates on the seas has created some level of insecurities among vessels on the Gulf of Guinea, thus promoting the Ghana to put in measures to tackle the activities of pirates.

The Ghana Navy has successfully averted / foiled a piracy attempt on an AFKO 805 tuna fishing Vessel, some 105 nautical miles south of Aflao.

The Pirates, who were on board two speed boats couldn't carry out what they planned on doing, as the Ghana navy showed them "Rambo style" sea tactics.

Commander Andy La-Anyane, Acting Director Public Relations at the Ghana Navy said in a statement that “on Monday October 11, 2021 at about 0200 hours, the Navy successfully warded off pirates onboard two speed boats who suspiciously approached the tuna vessel operating 105 nautical miles south of Aflao”.

Commander La-Anyane further said the operation ended without any casualty to the vessel and its crew.

He further assured all vessels and their operators within the Ghana maritime domain of the Navy's eagerness to protect all those engaged in legal businesses and also accost all those engaged in illegalities, calling for a cooperation of all partners to enable Ghana achieve a safe maritime environment for national development.

The incident was reported on mainstream media some few hours ago.

Kudos to the Ghana Navy for their timely response and selfless act in combating crime, even on the sea.
