Today we are going to talk about a T.V show we watched last night on SKY 1. It was brilliant. It was about Ross Kemp who went to Nigeria to see what the big deal was about Pirates.
He visited the biggest slums in Nigeria on his journey and he found out that pirates use guns, knives and wear bulletproof vests. They take a small boat out and start shooting the boat and they are after the oil and money. We found out that at least once a day there is an oil spillage and there are at least 300 kidnapps a year in Nigeria. He spoke to the govenor of Nigeria and the govenor said kidnapping is a death sentence . Nowadays many fishermen don’t go into the sea because of the pirates.
Ross Kemp spoke to a man who had been kidnapped by a pirate for 26 days and they never fed him for 10 whole days and he knew them well. The pirates are very rude and are mostly criminals and they hide their face with a bandanna and some pirates are just out of secondary school.
The show was fascinating and 3 people in my class watched it and we all enjoyed it.
