UK Says Abuja Now Relatively Safe

The government of UK has updated its travel advisory on Nigeria after about two weeks of advising against travels to most parts of the country including Abuja.

“The FCDO no longer advises against all but essential travel to the Federal Capital Territory, including the city of Abuja, but risks remain,” it said in its latest advisory.

While the amber alert on the FCT is now green, its advice against travelling to other areas of Nigeria remains in place.

“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,” it said in the advisory.
