Vanni International Security Systems is the pioneer professional private security company established in Nigeria. Our service spans several decades and we have built a reputation which is second to none within the security industry. Vanni Security started operations in 1971 with the introduction of the uniformed security officer, and guard dogs. Shortly after, Vanni Security introduced Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) security systems and marketed the popular Chubb brand in Nigeria.

In the early seventies, Vanni Security imported the first purpose built armoured CVIT vehicles to be used in Nigeria. The vehicles were vetted by Nigeria’s former President Olusegun Obasanjo, who was responsible for Nigeria’s Army Engineering Corp, at the time.

We continue to provide excellent CVIT services with our fleet of armoured money vans. We pride ourselves in our professionalism and the provision of a fit-for-purpose service to our clients.

Vanni Security continues to forge relationships and partnerships within and outside the security industry. We currently provide training consultancy services in collaboration with partners from Africa, Europe and the Americas.’

Professionalism for us is the key word – we do not merely wish to provide a service but what we aim to do is provide a service that meets global industry standards. Vanni Security will continue to provide innovative solutions to the security challenges in 21st century Nigeria.

“Our aim is to change the way security services are provided in Nigeria….We remain at the forefront of security service provision through our use of novel technology, in collaboration with partners.” – Otunba (Dr) Victor Vanni – Founder
