The Foreign And Commonwealth office of the United Kingdom has just given a stern warning to it’s citizens not to travel to certain states in Nigeria.
These warnings are as a result of the chaos being caused by Boko Haram in the north east, criminal activity in the north west and activities of militants in the Niger Delta.
Specifically, the FCO advised against all travels to Borno; Yobe; Adamawa; Gombe; and the riverine areas of Delta, Rivers, Akwa Ibom and Cross River states.
The British government also cautioned against trips to within 20km of the border with Niger and Zamfara states.
The FCO further advised against all but essential travel to Bauchi, Zamfara, Kano, Jigawa, Katsina, Kogi and within 20km of the border with Niger in Sokoto and Kebbi states including the non-riverine areas of Delta, Bayelsa, Rivers and Abia States.
