Reconsider traveling to Delta, 11 other Nigerian States - US warns her citizens


 

The United States Mission in Nigeria, has handed down a holiday security alert, advising US citizens to reconsider traveling to Delta and 11 other states in Nigeria, due to perceived spike in COVID-19, crime, terrorism, civil unrest, kidnapping and maritime criminal activities, Fresh Angle International can authoritatively report.

The US Mission in Nigeria in statement released this morning, Thursday December 17, via her verified twitter handle, listed the 12 states as Borno, Yobe, Adamawa, Bauchi, Gombe, Kaduna, Kano, Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Cross Rivers, Delta and Rivers.

While warning against travelling to Borno and Yobe States as well as Northern Adamawa due to terrorism, the US Mission hinged the warning against holidaying in Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Kaduna, Kano and Yobe States, on increase in the rate of kidnapping.

The statement added that the warning as it affects traveling to: “Coastal areas of Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Cross Rivers, Delta and Rivers States (with the exception of Port Harcourt)is due to crime, civil unrest, kidnapping and maritime crime”.

“Violent crime – such as armed robbery, assault, carjacking, kidnapping and rape is common throughout the country. Exercise extreme caution throughout the country, due to the threat of indiscriminate violence.

“Terrorists continue plotting and carrying out attacks in Nigeria, especially in the Northeast. Terrorists may attack with little or no warning, targeting shopping centers, malls, markets, hotels, places of worship, restaurants, bars, schools, government installations, transportation hubs, and other places where crowds gather.

“Sporadic violence occurs between communities of farmers and herders in rural areas. 

“There is maritime crime in the Gulf of Guinea.

“The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in many areas of Nigeria due to security conditions, the US Mission emphasized.
