Any one in Lagos (Nigeria)

Hi I have been offered a job in Nigeria (Lagos). Anyone has any experience to live there ? Is there any security issue there ?
Thank you.

Regards,
Faisal

Well, there are security issues everywhere, but I can tell you that living in Lagos (the areas where normal expats live in Lagos) is not more unsafe than living in Houston.

The problem of Lagos, and most parts of Nigeria) is that you cannot walk, you cannot drive, you cannot take a taxi and some other things that you would normally do in other Countries.

I have lived here for 4 years and I have never had any problem, but I know of friends that have crossed the line and have gotten into trouble.

You have to be careful, keep a low profile and you will never have problems.

In the other hand, moving in the Victoria Island/Ikoyi environment, you can have fun and be safe at the same time.

Be careful with the house staff and drivers. They will steal/cheat you unless you are lucky to employ the proper one.
