Terror Threat: US Govt Warns Citizens To Avoid Major Hotels In Nigeria

The Government of the United States of America has warned its citizens in Nigeria to avoid major hotels in the country due to elevated threats.

The US Embassy in Nigeria issued the warning in an emergency information for American citizens on Friday, November 3, 2023, adding that the Nigerian security agencies are working to counter the threat.

It said US citizens should exercise vigilance at major hotels, be alert to their surroundings, keep a low profile, and review the travel advisory for Nigeria before checking into any hotels.

The advisory reads: “The U.S. Government is aware of credible information that there is an elevated threat to major hotels in Nigeria’s larger cities.

“The Nigerian security services are working diligently to counter the threat.

“The U.S. Department of State advises U.S. citizens to consider this information when arranging lodging or visiting major hotels in Nigeria.”

The notice also provided the addresses and telephone numbers of the US embassy in Abuja and consulate in Lagos should any US citizen require help.

Recall that in October, the US advised all its citizens worldwide to exercise restraint in travelling to various locations around the world.

Nigeria was listed under the third tier of caution alert (Reconsider to travel).
