Shortly after the United States of America warned of possible attacks in Abuja, the United Kingdom has restricted access to its High Commission in Abuja.
On Sunday, the UK updated its terrorist warning for Nigerian citizens.
The Federal Capital Territory is now under higher threat from terrorist attacks, the UK said (FCT).
The UK public was advised to “consider moves carefully, monitor the local news and the advice of security authorities” and to “be vigilant.”
The travel warning for foreign countries advised avoiding going to marketplaces, malls, hotels, pubs, restaurants, football viewing areas, displaced persons’ camps, transportation hubs (including train networks), government structures, and schools.
On Monday, October 24, only essential workers will be permitted access to the British High Commission’s facilities in Abuja, according to this announcement.
The High Commission stated that its judgment would be binding on all workers in a notice obtained by Newsbreak Nigeria.
Additionally, parents were “strongly” urged not to enroll their children in school.
The development occurs shortly after the United States (US) warned its nationals that terrorist attacks may occur in the FCT.
The development comes shortly after U.S. warned of a possible attack in the country’s federal capital.
