U.S government advises citizens against travelling to Nigeria

The United States has warned its citizens to avoid travelling to Nigeria due to insecurity.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs.

Citizens were warned against travelling to Borno, Yobe and the Northern part of Adamawa State due to terrorism.

Areas prone to maritime crime, kidnappings etc are listed as Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Cross Rivers, Delta, and Rivers states with the exception of Port Harcourt.

The statement reads in part: “Exercise extreme caution throughout the country due to the threat of indiscriminate violence.

“Terrorists continue plotting and carrying out attacks in Nigeria, especially in the Northeast. Terrorists may attack with little or no warning, targeting shopping centers, malls, markets, hotels, places of worship, restaurants, bars, schools, government installations, transportation hubs, and other places where crowds gather.

“Sporadic violence occurs between communities of farmers and herders in rural areas.”
