Private security is becoming big business in Nigeria, and why not? The practice is now, more than ever, very essential in achieving proper security of lives and property.

Therefore, it is time for the private security industry to be taken more seriously by government and all other players in the security sector.

This is why the authors of the book “Essentials of Public Relations for Private Security Officers” will be publicly presenting the book on Friday, October 26 in Lagos.

The book is jointly authored by two Lagos based journalists; Odita Sunday, a Senior Crime Correspondent with the Guardian newspaper and Frank Oshanugor, Editor-in-Chief of Security Express Magazine.

They believe private security should be a noble profession like law, accounting, banking and so on and their own contribution is by way of providing knowledge-based information.

This, they have done in the book which they described as a valuable material for personnel of the various private security companies in the country.
