Terror Attacks: UK Govt Warns It's Citizens Against Travelling To 24 Nigerian States

The UK government warned its citizens against visiting 24 states in Nigeria, among which are President Muhammadu Buhari’s home state, Katsina and others including, Borno, Yobe Adamawa, Gombe States.
According to a statement on its website, the UK government warned its citizens that terrorists are likely to carry out terror attacks in those states.
It also warned that beside Abuja, other states in the north remain risky.

It said, “You should avoid places where crowds gather, including political meetings, religious gatherings and places of worship, markets, shopping malls, hotels, bars, restaurants, transport hubs and camps for displaced people. Attacks could be indiscriminate and could affect western interests as well as places visited by tourists.”
It said there is high threat of kidnap throughout Nigeria.

The statement reads thus:
“The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all travel to:
Borno State
Yobe State
Adamawa State
Gombe State
riverine areas of Delta, Bayelsa, Rivers, Akwa Ibom and Cross River States
within 20km of the border with Niger in Zamfara State
The FCO advise against all but essential travel to:
*Bauchi State
*Zamfara State
*Kano State
*Kaduna State
*Jigawa State
*Katsina State
*Kogi State
*within 20km of the border with Niger in Sokoto and Kebbi States, non-riverine areas of Delta, Bayelsa and Rivers state.
*Abia state.
Terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in Nigeria. Most attacks occur in the north east, particularly in Borno (including central Maiduguri and along access routes connecting the city to other major towns and along the Niger border, including in Damasak), Yobe, including the eastern LGAs bordering Borno State both north and south of the Damaturu road), and Adamawa States.
