Citizens in the United Kingdom have been advised not to visit 22 states in Nigeria.

On Monday, November 7, 2022, the UK Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office (FCDO) made this announcement in a statement that was posted on its website.

The country’s security status is related to the warning.

Remember how the UK government limited entry to the British High Commission in Abuja after issuing a warning in October about an elevated threat of terrorist attack in the Federal Capital Territory.

The UK stated that the warning is intended to help its citizens make better-informed judgments regarding foreign travel and plan for a trouble-free journey in the statement titled “Updated Foreign Commonwealth Development Office Travel Advice to British Nationals Traveling to the FCT.”

The statement read, “FCDO travel advice exists to inform British nationals so they can make decisions about travelling abroad. There continues to be a number of states in Nigeria where we advise British Nationals against all but essential travel. These include: Bauchi, Kano, Jigawa, Niger, Sokoto, Kogi, Abia, Plateau, Taraba, within 20km of the border with Niger in Kebbi State and non-riverine areas of Delta, Bayelsa and Rivers States.

“We also advise against all travel to: Borno State, Yobe State, Adamawa State, Gombe State, Kaduna State, Katsina State, Zamfara state, and the riverine areas of Delta State, Bayelsa State, Rivers State, Akwa Ibom State and Cross River State.

“The UK keeps its travel advice under regular review and in making these assessments, and uses information from a wide range of sources. The travel advice is constantly reviewed to make sure it reflects the current situation in Abuja and Nigeria. Although, the FCDO Travel Advice no longer advises against all but essential travel to the Federal Capital Territory, including the city of Abuja, it makes clear that some risks remain.”

The United Kingdom advised its residents to follow this guide for the most recent developments and keep in touch with their travel companies.
