Our goal is simple: to safeguard our clients, enabling them to focus on their objectives amidst unfamiliar and often challenging environments.

The Rising Threat: Kidnapping Statistics from Nigeria

A recent Nigeria Deep Dive, ‘Analysis of Kidnapping Trends in Early 2024’, produced by Castor Vali’s Security Information Service, highlights that approximately 1,700 kidnappings took place between 1 January 2024 and 18 March 2024, predominantly in the North West and North Central regions. These kidnappings, often perpetrated by so-called bandit groups, reveal a hybrid criminal threat—actors adopting tactics typically associated with warfare or terrorism. Furthermore, a noticeable increase in kidnappings in the southern regions highlights the emergence of new, albeit less equipped, criminal factions that pose significant threats to public safety, economic stability, and business operations.

Africa’s economic potential is vast, yet it is shadowed by security threats that underscore the need for enhanced safety measures for both personnel and assets. Despite the lure of untapped opportunities, direct engagement remains essential to navigate the region’s complexities. While digital solutions provide convenience, they cannot replace the invaluable on-the-ground insights necessary when considering significant investments. The best security providers use technology in concert with physical services to provide holistic and effective client solutions.
