Global experience, local expertise. That’s our advantage.
Founded by two industry professionals who together have over 60-years’ security management experience, the UK based company Mantra Operations Solutions Limited, together with its Nigeria based sister company Mantra Protection Solutions Limited, is widely recognised as a dynamic, powerful force in the world of security provision.
Our inherent understanding of security risk management within the demanding, highly charged Nigerian business environment has made us uniquely qualified to work with leading commercial operations.
Whilst we have long-standing relationships with several clients involved in the oil and gas sector, our specialist maritime, aviation and security consultancy services are significantly extending our reach and reputation across other major industries, such as finance, construction, hospitality and retail.
There are many aspects to consider when choosing a security provider. However, we believe that we are in the unique position of being able to offer the perfect combination of both ‘global experience’ and ‘local expertise’ to help each of our clients with their specific security needs.
Our founding directors and our senior management team between them have many years global security experience, gained across several different industries, including oil and gas, maritime, aviation, transportation and logistics.
They have all held senior security positions for multi-national companies and have overseen security operations in every region across the globe: the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Asia Pacific region.
Many security companies may boast of their own global experience. We believe that what truly makes us stand out from the competition is our ‘local expertise’ in the Nigerian business market.
Our founding directors, our senior management team and the rest of our employees have worked very hard over the years to build up a trusted network of local contacts in Nigeria.
It is this trusted network of contacts which means that we are able to question, validate and prove or disprove any piece of security intelligence that we receive. Our clients know that they can trust us to provide them with accurate and timely security advice and recommendations, regardless of the situation.
We are also strengthened by an in-the-field advisory team (primarily ex UK military/law enforcement personnel who have proven backgrounds in commercial security). As a result, we are able to provide a comprehensive range of security services to our clients.
In December 2021, Mantra has been accepted on to the UK Government’s Department of International Trade Overseas Referral Network as a provider of specialist security services for the Africa Market Entry Team.
We are very proud of the official recognition that our company has received from the UK Department of International Trade following their stringent review process.
With offices in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt, Benin City, Uyo and London, our security solutions include armed escort services, security consultancy, maritime security, aviation security, risk analysis, manned guarding, VIP protection, technical security, alarm monitoring and private investigations.
Few environments present business operations with such complex and challenging security demands as that of Nigeria. We have the expertise and resources to meet them.
So, if you are considering expanding your business into Nigeria, but are concerned about the security situation there, please get in touch with us. We are happy to help.
