British Government Warns Citizens From Visiting 21 States in Nigeria

The British Government has advised its citizens against travelling to about 21 states in Nigeria.

This, according to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) of the United Kingdom, is as a result of the growing security concerns in the country.

In a statement posted on its website and updated on Monday, the FCO said that attacks by Boko Haram terrorists in the North-East, raids by armed bandits in the North-West and militancy in the South-South, has worsened the security situation in the nation.

On this premise, citizens were specifically advised not to travel to Borno, Yobe; Adamawa, Gombe, and the riverine areas of Delta, Rivers, Akwa Ibom, and Cross River states.

They were also advised against trips to within 20 kilometres of the border with Niger and Zamfara states.
