Boats flying the Togolese flag continue to perform poorly in the waters, thus smearing the name of Togo. The latest feat of arms is that of the vessel MV Johanna II which would be boarded on July 14, 2021, as well as another whose nationality was not revealed, on September 10, 2021, in Nigerian waters because he was involved in an alleged case of illegal bunkering of oil.
According to information provided by the Port Harcourt Zone Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, the Togolese-flagged vessel had 12 suspects on board when it was boarded around the IMA oil terminal. And it was loaded with 394.00 liters of product suspected to be AGO (automotive diesel).
It is up to the Togolese authorities to see clearly in the registrations of ships to avoid these kinds of inconveniences which do not honor the country.
