I would like to have on board such person as security advisor because we are trained only theoretical, we do not know what is reality and I believe that advisor has been involved in real situation before, than he is competent person to give any advice.

The company was registered in 2010 and has since been active in the Maritime Industry in various disciplines. The journey started, combating piracy under extremely aggressive conditions, in the Nigerian Delta in 2006.

With the major threat of piracy in the Gulf of Aden now something of the past, the only threat is in the Gulf of Guinea, known as Nigerian waters. This is very tricky as Nigeria does not allow any foreign security members onboard a vessel in Nigerian waters. Only Nigerian security guards may be used and it is no secret that these guards are not worth even being mentioned.

The 14 x Gangs of Pirates have a feast as they are being well supplied of boats, weapons, fuel ammunition on the one side and allowed sufficient time to attack and rob vessels on the other side. A very smooth set-up and shipping companies are required to pay extreme amounts of money for a face-value guarding service which has no value at all.

The fact is that the pirates take only people for ransom, mobile phones, computers and Cash as they are normally “allowed” no more than 30-45 minutes onboard a vessel before the Reaction Force from the Nigerian Navy arrives.

And that is where the crux of the protection should be based on. There is no threat on any live or on the vessel and its cargo, only men and valuable small items and cash!
