Nigerian ship reportedly sunk deliberately to hide evidence of illegal activities(Photos)

Captain and crew of a sinking Nigerian ship,were rescued on monday by Environmental activists .The rescued 40 crew from the sinking ship are suspected of conducting illegal fishing near the island of Sao Tope, off the Gabon coast.
The Nigerian-flagged Thunder was being tracked by activists from the charity Sea Shepherd, who believed it was engaged in illegal fishing.

Sea Shepherd's vessels Bob Barker and Sam Simon who rescued the men from the ocean., believe the captain and crew intentionally sank the ship to hide evidence of illegal activities..

Bob Barker's captain Peter Hammarstedt said:

 'It is an incredibly suspicious situation, to say the least.
'When my chief engineer boarded the Thunder in the hours leading up to the sinking, he was able to confirm that there were clear signs that the vessel was intentionally scuttled.Usually when a vessel is sinking, the captain will close all hatches so as to maintain buoyancy. However, on the Thunder, the reverse was done - doors and hatches were tied open and the fishhold was opened.'
