The UK Foreign and Commonwealth office had challenged its citizens against traveling to some states in Nigeria.
The UK government stated that journey to this states, Borno, Yobe, Adamawa, Gombe, Delta, Bayelsa, Rivers, Akwa Ibom, Cross River States and 20km of the border with Niger in Zamfara State should be cancelled.
Though FCO warned against all stated but emphasizes on this twenty states.
“Terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in Nigeria. Most attacks occur in the northeast, particularly in Borno (including central Maiduguri and along access routes connecting the city to other major towns and along the Niger border, including in Damasak), Yobe, including the eastern LGAs bordering Borno State both north and south of the Damaturu road), and Adamawa States.”
“There have also been significant attacks in Gombe, Kano, Kaduna, Jos and Bauchi States and in the Federal capital, Abuja. The terrorist threat across eastern Yobe and Borno State is high, with frequent recent attacks.”
“Terrorist groups carried out attacks in North East Nigeria during the February 2019 election period, and further attacks are likely. We continue to advise against all travel to Borno and Yobe States.”
Fani-Kayode in his reaction slammed President Buhari and his supporters for the recent development. He wrote:
“Insecurity: UK imposes travel ban on 20 states in Nigeria.”
“Finally this is what it has come to. Buhari and his supporters should clap for themselves!”
