From u-boat.net - this looks like the most likley candidate

At 00.55 hours on 9 May 1943, the unescorted Kanbe, sailing from Freetown, South Africa to the UK with a cargo of copper, and a straggler from convoy TS-38, was hit in the foreship by two torpedoes from U-123 and sank within two minutes about 60 miles south of Monrovia.
The master, 57 crew members and three gunners were lost.
