The federal police went to the scene and confirmed the presence of a group of four illegal immigrants who were sitting on the external structure of the ship. They identified themselves as Nigerians.

The ship was on the coast of Espírito Santo and, according to the PF, the immigrants were located by the crew itself.

They were hidden in the ship’s wheelhouse. For humanitarian and security reasons, all were rescued and the conditional disembarkation of the group was authorized due to their precarious health conditions.
