One of the four Ghanaians being held by Somali pirates has told his relatives in Ghana that they are being taken off the ship to an unknown location.

The pirates are currently holding 24 persons captive.

They were aboard the MV Iceberg 1 off the Somali coast last year. Citi News gathers that some of the hostages have had their lips and ears cut off.

The Somali pirates are agitated about the delay in meeting their demand and have threatened to kill the crew, made up of six Indians, nine Yemenis, two Sudanese and three Filipinos.

The Ghanaians include Edward Kofi Asare, Francis Koomson Snr. , Jewel Amiable and a fourth person whose identity is not yet known.

The son of one of the hostages, Francis Koomson Jnr. told Citi News, I called on Saturday evening and I learnt they are being taken out of the ship to the land, but the destination we cannot tell."

He said that they were being beaten but as to cutting of their fingers and ears, it is only being done to [other nationals].
