Case Studies


We hired Rootsearch Security Last year to find out whether our driver who we hired from word of mouth did actually have the credentials he claimed to have and also to find out where him and he’s family are from. Rootsearch Security went as far as Togo to trace this individual’s family and also past employers and returned a full dossier with information we never expected. This company is very thorough and precise! They are run and organised like a western Company working out of West Africa. I would definitely recommend them and encourage people to use them.


Rootsearch provided us with the topmost service for our wedding. They organised our security for our two days of celebration and they were faultless and extremely proffessional in carrying out their duties while being courteous to our guests. We already recommended them to 3 other couples who have also used them with equal success.

A client of our’s was running for office and had death threats leved against him, we heard of Rootsearch Security from a high placing lawyer in our camp and decided to give them a call. They organised two of their best agents to be in abuja in less than 24hrs after the initial call. Their professionalism was something that stood out most and their ability to blend in with the crowd as not to attract negative press nor to alarm the greeting public. Their private personal security (PPS) is of the highest calibre and would recommend them to any dignitary wanting protection without it being loud and noticeable.
