Trade unions now calls for relevant authorities to secure the release of the eight crew members from a German-owned cargo ship that was kidnapped five days ago off the coast of Nigeria.

The kidnapped seven Russians and a Ukrainian, are believed to be held hostage in Nigeria after the kidnapping. And both the International Transport Workers Organization (ITF) and the Russian and Ukrainian sister organization calls on the relevant authorities "to ensure the release" of the crew members.

"These sailors are in a dangerous situation, and it is a deeply troubling time for their relatives. It requires a fast response: We understand that the Russian embassy is involved and if there is anything we can do to support their diplomatic efforts to secure the release of the crew members, we would like to help," says a statement from the President of maritime section of the ITF.

The ship BBC Caribbean is owned by the German shipping company Briese Schiffahrts and is operated by a subsidiary in St. Petersburg, was en route from Duala, Cameroon to Tema, Ghana, when it was attacked.
