Not sure how many of you have actually been to Nigeria through Lagos so will give you a brief description of airport.
There are no screening facilities and all suitcases are searched by hand unless you are meeting somebody important - in which case you just bypass all
the security and walk straight through (on the way in and on the way out)
The chap I was meeting (business) just waved at me and lifted the rope and I ducked under and walked straight out of airport into waiting car. (he had
paid the required bribes)
Once you are in Lagos itself or surrounding cities lets just say it was a real eye opener and I feel VERY lucky that I wasn't born there.
I would hazard a guess most other countries in that area are similar in their security (ie there is none)
Admittedly was maybe 4 or 5 years ago I was there but doubt much has changed since then - BRIBERY was rampant and how all those in 'power' seemed to
make a living.
