Statement cautioning against non-essential travel to Abuja wasn’t authorized – Foreign Affairs Ministry

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration says the earlier travel alert issued regarding security concerns in Abuja, Nigeria, was unauthorized.

Travelers have been warned by the Ministry about recent security events in Abuja.

The Ministry also issued a warning on a later order from local authorities ordering hotels operating in residential premises to close.

The Ministry of Information issued a statement advising the people to steer clear of unnecessary travel to Abuja due to the unpredictability of the city’s security situation and the high risk of terrorism, criminality, intercommunal strife, armed attacks, and kidnapping.

“Whilst advising travelers who must travel out of necessity to Abuja to take precautionary measures, the Ministry will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates to the public when the situation improves,” the statement dated November 16 said.

But in another statement issued by the Ministry, it said “[it] refers to travel advisory published this evening Wednesday November 16 2022 advising against non-essential travel to Abuja and wishes to state that the statement was unauthorized.

“The Ministry is not aware of any threat targeted at Ghanaians who continue to live in harmony with their Nigerian brothers and sisters.”

The Ministry says it regrets any inconvenience this may have caused to travelling public.
