Terror Alert: UK Foreign Office Updates Travel Advisory To Nationals, Says Shelve All Travels To Abuja, FCT

Abuja, 27 October 2022 – The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) has updated its travel advice on 26 October to British nationals. The FCDO now advises against all but essential  travel to the Federal Capital Territory, including the city of Abuja.

The updated advice outlines that there is an increased threat of terrorist attack in Abuja. British nationals are advised to stay alert, avoid non-essential travel within the city and follow the local news and the advice of security authorities.

The British High Commission remains open for essential services. The travel advice will constantly be reviewed to make sure it reflects the current situation in Abuja and Nigeria.

FCDO travel advice exists to inform British nationals so they can make decisions about travelling abroad. Other states in Nigeria where  we advise against all but essential travel 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.
