In line with prudent practice, the vessel in question had installed a set of bars in the rudder trunk to prevent stowaways from accessing the vessel through this area. Following loading operations in Port Harcourt the vessel sailed for Brazil with a cargo of cement. Once the vessel was about 350 miles out, the crew discovered 5 stowaways hiding the rudder trunk.
