Releasing the value in Nigeria’s 3,000+ hidden towers


Secured Towers monetise privately owned towers by turning them from cost-headaches for their owners into infill sites for network operators

Nigeria needs to roughly double its tower count to expand coverage and densify networks to meet data demand in urban areas. Any tower strategy that can reduce the capex required for this multi-billion dollar programme will do a lot to accelerate network build out and improve quality of service. Secured Towers are aiming to manage and upgrade the over 3,000 of such towers already in place in Nigeria which are privately owned without a mobile operator tenant. TowerXchange speaks with Collins Onumajuru, CEO at Secured Towers about how he is progressing in filling Nigeria’s tower deficit.

If you would like to know more, Collins Onumajuru will be taking part in TowerXchange Meetup Africa, in Johannesburg, on October 8-9th, click here to register or email Anna Mayhew at
