Avoid non-essential travel to Abuja due to terrorism and armed attacks – Foreign Affairs Ministry

Travelers have been advised about recent security developments in Abuja, Nigeria, by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration.

 

The Ministry additionally issued a warning over the subsequent order issued by local authorities for hotels located in residential complexes to close.

 

Due to the unpredictability of the security situation in the city and the high risk of terrorism, criminality, intercommunal strife, armed attacks, and kidnapping, the Ministry of Information and Culture recommended the public to avoid non-essential travel to Abuja.

“Whilst advising travelers who must travel out of necessity to Abuja to take precautionary measures, the Ministry will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates to the public when the situation improves,” the statement dated November 16 said.
