Myre Seadiver crew was detained at the port of Lagos on October 19, 2012 on arms smuggling charges. On June 18, the Nigerian court has dismissed charges against eight of the fifteen Russian sailors.

As the judge James Tsoho announced, the charges against the eight members of the crew have been dismissed at the suggestion of the prosecutor's office.
