Just like the United States, the United Kingdom (UK) has also issued a terrorism alert to citizens in Nigeria.
UK warned of an increased threat of terrorist attack in the federal capital territory (FCT) and also admonished its citizens to stay alert, “consider movements carefully, follow the local news and the advice of security authorities”.
UK citizens were warned against visits to markets, shopping malls, hotels, bars, restaurants, football viewing centres, displacement camps, transport terminals (including train networks), government buildings — and schools.
The British High Commission in Abuja also said that from Monday, October 24, only critical staff will be allowed access to its facility.
Parents were also warned against sending their children to school.
