Port Harcourt - A group of ex-militants has hijacked a ship with foreign crew on board off the Bakassi Peninsula coast line, reports NewsDay.

The ship was hijacked on Friday evening.

The group has threatened to blow up the ship with its foreign crew if the detained Director of Radio Biafra and Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu is not released immediately.

The group recently gave the Federal Government a 31-day ultimatum to release Kanu.

He said the group is not interested in the country that owns the ship.
