While I feel for the guy ...it read like he was maneuvering to sue his employer. Business in that part of the world is dirty..he had to know the deal when he went there...nobody goes to lagos except for the money.period.
I have a friend that is way up in one of the big oil companys there..he drives to work in a armed convoy and has a full auto uzi with him at all times. He knows the risk, assumes it and gets paid obsurd amounts of money to be there.

He worked in Nigeria 4.5 years.

He requested to go where he was.

He worked 45 day stints.

I'd like to know the rest of their story.
