Flood: Australian Govt Warns Nationals Not To Travel To Nigeria
The Australian government, on Wednesday, warned its citizens to desist from travelling to Nigeria over the recent flooding that has ravaged some parts of the country.
This was contained in a travel advisory issued to Australians on the consulate’s website.
It read, “There have been significant casualties and widespread damage to infrastructure caused by severe flooding. Essential services may be disrupted. Follow the advice of local authorities and check the media for updates.
“The potential for terrorism, kidnapping, crime and civil unrest remains high throughout Nigeria.
The consulate further alerted its citizens to research routes and get professional security advice and support before departing to Nigeria if there’s any need to be there.
However, the Australian consulate gave a long list of states in the country they want their citizens to avoid, including Abuja and its surrounding areas due to terrorist attacks and kidnapping threats.
