In response to this incident, the UK’s foreign travel advice service updated its website to advise against travel to specific areas in Nigeria. The mentioned areas include the riverine areas of Delta, Bayelsa, Rivers, Akwa Ibom, and Cross River States, as well as Anambra State in the Ogbaru area, close to Delta State. The warning is based on the presence of secessionist groups in the South East region of Nigeria, where attacks and violent clashes occasionally occur between these groups and security forces.
While foreign nationals are not typically targeted, there is a risk of being caught in an attack. The advice urges individuals to stay informed about local government announcements and media reports, and to exercise caution while in the affected areas.
It’s important to note that this information is based on the details you provided, and I would recommend following official travel advisories and staying updated on the situation for the most accurate and current information.
