Yuletide: US Bans Citizens From Travelling To Delta, 11 Other States In Nigerian (See Full List)

LAGOS DECEMBER 21ST (URHOBOTODAY)- United States Embassy in Nigeria has cautioned American citizens residing in Nigeria to reconsider traveling to Delta State and other eleven states in Nigeria due to COVID-19, crime, terrorism, civil unrest, kidnapping, and maritime crime.
The US in a notice shared on its official website and Twitter, cautioned its citizens residing in Nigeria against intra and inter state movements as crimes tend to increase during holidays in the country.
“We remind U.S. citizens to exercise caution while traveling and residing in Nigeria. Crime is endemic throughout Nigeria, ranging from petty street crime to carjacking, and crime levels tend to increase during the holidays,” the embassy wrote, highlighting danger zones in the country.
The US in its notice identified Delta, Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Cross Rivers, and Rivers states as “unsafe coastal areas” out of fear of possible civil unrest, kidnapping, and maritime crime. Other states are Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Kaduna, Kano, and Yobe states.
“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 North-east. 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,” the embassy noted.
