A man identified as LongJohn Precious has recounted his ordeal after being robbed along with others by sea pirates during their journey from Port-Harcourt to Bonny area in Rivers state.

Read below what he shared on Facebook earlier today.

The story on how I was robbed this morning at about 9:05am. I left home went to the BONNY jettty this morning at exactly 8:00am and boarded a boat going to Bonny and at about 8:40am we left ph for Bonny…

25mins after we left Ph for Bonny, we saw a speed boat waving at us to slow down. They are 6 in numbers + the driver all with guns…

Our driver refuses to stop after noticing it was sea pirates. So they chased us and met up with us, our driver still refused to stop, they have to start shooting. After about 5mins of battling with them they now shot our driver. At this point I knew we’ve entered one chance….

Two of them now jumped in our boat all holding guns to our heads with the instructions.. All heads down and they pushed our driver into the river… And drove us away to an unknown destination…

After about 15mins drive they now parked and told us to drop all our stuffs.. Which everybody did except me. I was holding my phone on my and I was still covering my head… So I had to put my phone inside my boxers tho my other phones and cash was in my bag which they took away….

So we all came down on the mud except for an elderly woman and a kid that was in the boat.. They’ve to transfer them to a fisherman’s boat… And dove off with both our boat and theirs with all our stuffs…

Luckily for us that my phone was safe, I’ve to make some calls across for rescues and with the help of the fisherman, they were able to locate us.. And rescue us. Thanks to God almighty for our lives and safety….

Tho I’ve lost all my stuffs and phones.

My special appreciation to Comr Sylva Omoni, Uncle Charles Jackmay, BMTA Body…. T. Marine for your fast and quick response for our rescue and to all those who shown concious…
