Canada warns its citizens against non-essential travel to Nigeria

The Canadian government has warned its citizens against non-essential travel to Nigeria over continuous insecurity in the country.

This was contained in the country’s travel advisory addressed to its citizens.

The travel advisory read;

“Avoid non-essential travel to Nigeria due to the unpredictable security situation throughout the country and the significant risk of terrorism, crime, inter-communal clashes, armed attacks and kidnappings.

“Avoid all travel to the following regions due to the risk of terrorism, armed attacks, kidnapping, intercommunal and sectarian violence: The north-western states of Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Sokoto and Zamfara, the north-central state of Plateau; the north-eastern states of Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Jigawa and Yobe; the Niger Delta states of Akwa Ibom, Anambra, Bayelsa, Delta, Imo and Rivers (with the exception of Rivers’ capital city, Port Harcourt, where we advise against non-essential travel).

“The decision to travel is your choice and you are responsible for your personal safety abroad.”
