Speed boat drivers operating within the Andoni waterways have decried the incessant attacks and harassment they suffer in the
hands of sea pirates and armed robbers, according to these drivers, these acts have led to the lost of several speed boats and other valuable properties owned by maritime workers in the area.
The latest attack in the area on maritime workers which happened today 18th July 2017 seems to be the last straw that broke the camel's back. According to reports from one Mr Emmanuel Augustine, the attackers came in the early hours of today, attacked and stole a speed boat belonging to one Mr Timothy at the Asarama-Ebukuma waterfront axis of the unity road. This latest sad development led to the drivers declaring a three day strike action to call the attention of the relevant authorities to the insecurity in the Andoni waterways.
