jambalaya, you’ve completely sold it to me. I’m getting contracts sent over tonight 😉
The contract term was for 3 years, but I don’t think they can complete the deal in 3 years, so would expect to be held against my will until it’s done.
Despite definitely not going, I am strangely attracted to the place in a perverse way now after reading this thread. Then again, I’m the numpty who always puts my hands up for jobs in areas of unrest and for corrupt governments. Keeps it interesting!
@peter – you are making the right call. My mate hid under the stairs with his wife and two daughters as the terrorists kicked in the door to his apartment and sprayed it with bullets (the truck bomb was to destroy the gate/security and the guys then came in with guns, story I heard is the gate security team had had a tip off and had left). He left immediately and never went back.
By all means visit, I still go fairly regularly.
EDIT I was goign to make a comparison to Nigeria but see you have been there too. My old employer used to insist we have private security there too.
