three months in Guinea’s possession

Roshan Arora told that on August 12, 26 crew members had gone to Boniport in Nigeria with a ship of OSM Ship Management Company. There, the Nigerian Navy stopped the ship saying that you guys had come here to steal oil, while all of us crew members had gone there to collect oil. But, due to non-availability of oil, he stood waiting.

On the other hand, Roshan told that when the ship was caught by the Nigerian Navy, they first allowed it to go from there, but as soon as they moved forward, the people of Guinea caught them again and kept them hostage there for the whole 3 months. The people of Guinea alleged that the India Merchant Navy did not follow the rules of our country.

The country of Guinea imposed a heavy fine on this. When OSM Ship Company made all the payment to the country of Guinea, then Guinea again handed over the ship to the country of Nigeria. After this, from November 2022 to May 2023, the company’s ship remained in the possession of Nigeria. According to OSM company officials, the ship has been released on 2 June. All crew members will reach their homes within 10 to 12 days.

26 people were involved in the ship

Roshan made a video and sent it to his family members when he was imprisoned by the Nigerian Navy. He had told the family members that apart from 16 Indians, there were 8 Sri Lankans, one Polish and one Filipino citizen inside the ship.
