3 take advantage of Ebola to Stowaway in a Dutch aid ship

    Reports suggest that , three stowaways have been found on board a logistics ship belonging to the Dutch navy that delivered aid to Ebola-hit nations in West Africa. According to the Dutch navy, the ship moored at a secured dock in Dakar, Senegal which was guarded by local security officials whiles the Dutch crew guarded access to the ship itself.

  It was therefore strange to imagine how these three people got on board the vessel but the Navy believed the stowaways clambered up mooring ropes to get on board the vessel Karel Doorman while it was moored in the West African port of Dakar, they then hid in a life boat and other parts of the ship.

  The navy said in a written statement that the men were given medical checks and showed no symptoms of Ebola or any other acute illness. They would be handed over to the military once the ship docks at the Netherlands.
