Vox Peccavi is a medium for security professionals to observe and analyse events and incidents in West Africa. The work and research is focused mainly around Nigeria.
The consultancy appears to post updates on IED attacks throughout Nigeria. It also offers advice on IEDs that appears to be aimed at local communities, as it details ways to try and ensure your safety as an individual in an area that is at high risk of an IED attack. This may be due to the region the individual lives in or due to a particular event that increases IED risk. This advice too remains aimed at those living in Nigeria or other areas of West Africa.
They also explore the tactics behind the use of the IED by groups that operate in West Africa, such as Boko Haram. Their reports have examined where the groups might get their resources in order to build IEDs and these groups find safe/hospitable places to build them.
