Spearfish recently managed a commercial kidnap case in Nigeria for an existing client to a successful conclusion. This involved running the crisis management teams both locally and in the UK over a 2-day period, as well as active support in country using our regional Security Advisor network.

Spearfish were able to successfully manage and navigate this crisis because of their established and trusted team of experts on the ground in Nigeria. The decisions taken at that time were based on their in depth knowledge of the country whilst all the time considering the welfare of our staff involved.

Whilst in country a client contacted our UK Overwatch team to assist in resolving some urgent logistical issues. The Regional Security Advisor was immediately informed and within the hour had been in contact with the client and was able to book her a vetted hotel and driver.

Spearfish were in touch with our staff almost immediately. Because the RSA was on the ground he was able to organise the logistics in person and stay in touch with our team throughout the trip if necessary.

During a client’s recent visit to Abuja Islamic Movement of Nigeria ( IMN) protests broke out. Our local team’s expertise meant they were able to inform our client in real time and ramp up support to make sure that their welfare and duty of care was met.

Overwatch provided the duty of care and welfare our team needed whilst away. Situations in high risk areas can change very quickly. Spearfish were able to increase their support when it was necessary which gave our staff peace of mind and the ability for our team to concentrate on their task.
