Sea pirates off the shores of Nigeria attacked a Turkish flagged ship, Ozay-5, wounding two Turks and one Nigerian who were part of the crew.

In a written press release, the Turkish Undersecretariat of Maritime Affairs said Friday that Ozay-5 was attacked on Thursday night by at least eight sea pirates.

The pirates seized all cash money, mobile telephones and other valuable items in the ship.

The pirates and the crew members began fighting with each other when a crew member pushed the alarm button of the ship.

The sea pirates left the ship after spraying bullets on the personnel saloon. There were no major injuries or mass property damage in the ship.

The injured crew members have been taken to a hospital in Lagos, Nigeria. Their injuries were not life threatening.
