Business in West Africa is fundamentally different to eastern Africa.

The threats the region faces are also very different to those in other parts of the world. Nigeria’s well-established oil industry alone faces challenges from militants, pirates, terrorists and political instability. Salama Fikira Nigeria was established in 2013 and has gone from strength to strength as the regional hub for West Africa. We understand that security solutions must be tailored to specific environments and have worked both on and offshore West Africa to enable businesses to successfully complete their operations. Our base in Lagos, Nigeria, is ideally located to manage operations across the region. All operations are managed from our 24 hour regional operations centre in Lagos.
