Ghana Maritime Authority Says Its Ultra-Modern Monitoring System Is Effective Enough To Detect And Prevent Piracy

A Liberia-flagged oil tanker has gone missing off the coast of Ghana.

The Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Maritime Authority, Peter Azumah, says the ultra-modern monitoring systems that the authority is using on its corridors are efficient and effective enough to protect vessels within Ghana’s waters.

Explaining circumstances under which a foreign vessel allegedly carrying oil on the high sea recently got missing, Mr Azumah said the vessel was not hijacked in Ghana’s territorial waters.

He tells Radio Ghana’s correspondent what the authority and its collaborators are doing to intercept the missing vessel.
