I was just basically wondering of it is a dangerous place to go to. I have a meeting with the company Monday and I guess I can ask them.

I've got a feeling that kidnapping is a big risk, particularly if you're seen as being a rich foreigner.

A couple we know went back to Nigeria at the beginning of the year to get married, and the groom's cousin was snatched. Fortunately they got him back in one piece.

Has anyone here ever been to Nigeria? I just got word that I am to go there in January...

I have been to Lagos, not in a hurry to get back. :-X The main thing is to only eat at hotel restaurants and not wander the streets after dark - it wasn’t much fun but it didn’t appear dangerous in the daytime when sticking to the ”business areas”.

Context: I’v been living in Jakarta which for many is awful but I really enjoy as it still has that sort of an untamed frontier-town feeling to it; anything might happen on any given day and very often does. In Jakarta not many things work but Lagos seemed like thatˆ2 and the atmosphere was altogether much more sinister.

A few of the guys that used to work for me dived offshore in Nigeria. When they are on shore waiting to mobilise they have armed guards and cannot leave their hotel.

@Filthy Given the current dangers of Nigeria, is there any way you could tell the company that you won't go? I don't know of any job that's worth risking your life for.

unfortunately, no. Not unless I quit. They tell me I am going to be staying at a compound with other workers and there are armed guards. So it shouldn't be any more dangerous than when I have to work in other dangerous places.

@Matty123 I think “Sick” is the operative word.
