    I have worked in the Middle East and SE Asia. i am now considering a move to Africa. Possibly Rwanda, Nigeria.
    Does know what sort of salary or take home one would expect as a Principal?

    Not enough.

    Seriously, I know it sounds a bit Daily Mail but have you looked at the Home Office's advice on travel to Nigeria? It doesn't paint a pretty picture

    An ex Principal there has his contribution to this thread deleted, but mentioned shooting and death being common in schools there.. The media are too soft towards Nigeria.

    Outside of the US, not many countries have people walking around schools with guns as normal behaviour, other than Nigeria. Been there, never again.

    I see this argument a lot on here, usually in a sentence like "you could get mugged and shot in the streets of central London. I don't see how it's any different to the Democratic Republic of Congo".

    It's not just about the chances of something bad happening. It's all about how well-protected you would feel by the local authorities were something to go wrong.
