US department of States issues Nigeria travel warning to Citizens


The United States Department of States services has issued a new directive to its citizens warning them of some "risks" of travelling to Nigeria.

The statement was reportedly issued in response to the government’s plans to shut down the Nnamdi Azikwe Airport for repairs and the re-routing of air traffic from that airport to the Kaduna airport, as well as the international airports in Lagos, Kano and Port Harcourt.

This also comes on the heels of the incessant Boko Haram and Fulani Herdsmen attacks going on in the northeastern part of Nigeria.

In a new directive titled "Nigeria Travel warning" on its website, the Department of states services said "The Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the risks of travel to Nigeria and recommends that U.S. citizens avoid all but essential travel to Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Kano, and Yobe states because the security situation in northeast Nigeria remains fluid and unpredictable."

It added that the "Very poor transportation infrastructure also makes it difficult for the U.S. Mission to provide consular services in these states".

American Citizens were also warned to stay away from the Gulf of Guinea because of the threat of piracy.
