Nigeria is now well established as the epicenter of West African Piracy, and is fast becoming the highest risk region from a Maritime Security perspective, in the entire world.

Operating from Lagos since 2011, OPS Global Risk Management are able to offer a wide range of security solutions to our clients in Nigerian waters, and more importantly we are able to tailor each service dependent on the Client Vessel’s needs. We can offer Gunboat Escorts into major ports and anchorages from up to 200nm Offshore, Armed Guard teams, from 4-7 men depending on vessel movements, and Maritime Security Liaison officers, to apply the highest caliber of knowledge and training to a vessel’s security requirements.

Our relationships with the Nigerian security services are such that we are continually able to offer the highest-level service, with quick embark/disembarkation of Armed Guards, excellent communication and follow up.

All of our operations in Lagos are 100% legitimate and legal, we only use Nigerian Navy sanctioned Armed Guards, and we make a point of staying up to date with the latest local legislation and politics.
