Case Study


When two employees of an international energy company were kidnapped on their way to a plant in Nigeria, there was no time to lose. We had to act fast for our client – a large company with a presence in around 70 countries.

What we did

On receiving the emergency call we deployed our consultants to our client’s local headquarters in Lagos. There, we assisted in the formation of a Crisis Management Team (CMT) and the selection of a communicator. Using our regional intelligence assessments, we were able to establish a timeline framework and target settlement figure.

In this kind of work there are many stakeholders to manage – and we worked with our client to liaise with the victims’ families and friends, their co-workers, local authorities, the media and governments (both Nigerian and the victims’ national governments).


The victims were safely released after 44 days.
