"Mitigating Threats to Travel & Journey Management in Nigeria."
Travel and Journey Management in Nigeria has at no time, been more threatened and at risk, than it is, today. This is no doubt a function of the state of security in the country as apart from the now-traditional threats from kidnap-for-ransom groups and armed robbers; government security agents, including the police and the military, have become targets of attacks by armed assailants. In different parts of the country, from North to South, Irredentist groups like the IPOB have not hid their disdain for symbols of the Nigerian State as encapsulated in the security forces. So-called bandits, criminal herdsmen, Boko Haram terrorists, as well as the Islamic State of West Africa, and ‘’Unknown Gunmen’’; are perpetrating criminality across the nooks and crannies of Nigeria, but more particularly on the highways.
Practitioners in protective security are faced with the onerous task of operating in such a hostile environment. Mitigating the threats that plague travel and journey management, is both strategic and tactical for security professionals; as professionals must continue to show dynamism in confronting the threats that subsist.
Key takeaway will include:
Threats to travel and journey management from the perspective of diverse organisations.
Mitigation measures by different organisations. Operational environment peculiarities.
SOPs for effective journey management
