The government counselled its nationals to “avoid non-essential travel across Nigeria due to the unpredictable security situation throughout the country and the significant risk of terrorism, crime, inter-communal clashes, armed attacks and kidnappings.”

Several countries including the United States and the United Kingdom had expressed a similar concern over worsening insecurity in Nigeria where Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East had been a regular feature in the last 10 years and banditry in the North-West.

The advisory read: “Avoid all travel to the following regions due to the risk of terrorism, armed attacks, kidnapping, inter-communal and sectarian violence.

“The North-Western states of Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Sokoto, and Zamfara.

“The North-Central state of Plateau.

“The North-Eastern states of Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Jigawa and Yobe; and

“The Niger Delta states of Akwa Ibom, Anambra, Bayelsa, Delta, Imo, and Rivers (with the exception of Rivers’ capital city, Port Harcourt, where we advise against non-essential travel).”

The Canadian government also advised its nationals in Nigeria to “exercise a high degree of caution in Abuja, Calabar, and Lagos due to the incidence of crime.”
