From Voice of America:

Armed men have hijacked a tanker carrying 5,000 tons of oil from a port in Ivory Coast. [...]

A total of five incidents were reported off Ivory Coast in 2012, up from one the previous year. In October, suspected Nigerian pirates seized a tanker carrying more than 30,000 tons of gasoline off the coast of Abidjan, the first reported hijacking in the country.
