We have ten full-time staff based in Nigeria, with offices in both Lagos and Port Harcourt, to support our operations throughout the region, including Togo, Benin, Cote d’Ivoire and Ghana. Our team have been working in the region for over twelve years and bring a wealth of operational knowledge and experience to our services here, as well as excellent local contacts and access to local resources. All operations are also supported by our UK-based risk intelligence team.

Most countries in this region will not allow private guards and weapons to be deployed, instead requiring the use of their own National Armed Forces – either on board a commercial vessel or on an accompanying Security Escort Vessel. So since 2011 we have been working in partnership with carefully-selected, compliant local companies to deploy host nation forces to protect our clients. Our team are adept at handling the unique challenges this brings and working with the wider stakeholders to ensure that a high quality of service is consistently maintained.

We own and operate three security escort vessels in support of our regional operations. Based in Port Harcourt, the SEV’s are supported by our in house technical team. Employing our own crew members and being directly involved with all aspects of the local supply chain, we are able to ensure maximum vessel availability, reliability, and flexibility in support of your operations.
