Private security in Nigeria is often utilized by business travelers, celebrities, high net worth individuals and individual travelers. The risk of being targeted by organized criminals coupled with the overarching dangers of terrorism and violent crime in Nigeria often dictate the use of secure transport services, often supported by MOPOL and/or private security.


Having an experienced team of security specialists who are trained to navigate through challenging situations, accompanied by a reactive armed response capability (MOPOL) should strongly be considered, especially if traveling outside Lagos or during the hours of darkness.
