One more ship attacked S of Lagos. Same gang?

An unidentified ship was attacked late Jan 20 in Gulf of Guinea, some 55 nm S of Lagos. The ship nearest in time and position was tanker en route to Lagos, hopefully attack was thwarted, if this tanker was the ship in question. The ship didn’t stop and reached Lagos anchorage early in the morning Jan 21. Awaiting ship’s ID and more information. Looks like it was the same gang, which attacked container ship on Jan, is running rampant in waters south of Lagos.
