US Warns Citizens against Travelling to Nigeria

NEWSMAN, United States government has asked its citizens not to travel to Nigeria due to security challenges and rising cases of COVID-19 pandemic. 

The warning was contained in a travel advisory obtained on its website, dated August 6, cautioning US citizens from coming to 12 states in Nigeria affected by terrorism, civil unrest, kidnapping, and maritime crime.

“Reconsider travel to Nigeria due to COVID-19. Some areas have increased risk. Terrorist groups plotting and carrying out attacks in Nigeria, especially in the Northeast 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”. It noted.

In a statement, titled, “Country Summary”, the US citizens were warned not to travel to “Borno, Yobe, Adamawa, Bauchi, Gombe, Kaduna, and Kano states due to terrorism and kidnapping”. 

“Do not travel to coastal areas of Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Cross Rivers, Delta, and Rivers states (with the exception of Port Harcourt) – Crime is rampant throughout Southern Nigeria, and there is a heightened risk of kidnapping and maritime crime, along with violent civil unrest and attacks against expatriate oil workers and facilities,” it read.

The statement further revealed, “the US government has limited ability to provide emergency services to US citizens in many areas of Nigeria due to security conditions.”
