Reconsider your need to travel

We've reviewed our advice for Nigeria. We haven't changed the overall level, reconsider your need to travel. Some areas have an increased risk and we have raised the level of advice. The potential for terrorism, kidnapping, crime and civil unrest is high throughout Nigeria. Religious, ethnic and politically-motivated violence is increasing. Avoid intercity transport by road and rail. Groups often target transport routes. If despite our advice, you undertake travel within Nigeria, research routes and get professional security advice and support before departing. We advise: Reconsider your need to travel to Nigeria overall, including the capital Abuja and surrounding areas, due to high threats of terrorist attack and kidnapping, the volatile security situation, possible violent civil unrest and high levels of violent crime. Higher levels apply.
