Iran/US stand-off: US warns citizens in Nigeria

 

The killing of Iranian Military top shot  Qassem Soleimani in a drone airstrike last week, has prompted the United States to cautioned its citizens in Nigeria to reconsider travelling to or across country.

The US Embassy in Nigeria, in a statement on its website, urged  Americans in Nigeria to review their personal security measures, be prudent and keep a low profile.

Stating that it had no specific security threat information, the mission advised US nationals in Nigeria to stay alert in public places, including schools, hospitals, government facilities, places of worship, tourist locations, and transportation hubs.

The security advisory, which was dated January 3, 2020, also asked them to review and alter travel routes and times to reduce time and place predictability.

It reads:  “Due to recent world events, U.S. citizens should review their personal security measures. While we have no specific threat information, it is prudent to remind ourselves of the following personal security actions to follow on a regular basis.

“Actions to take: Be aware of your surroundings; keep a low profile; avoid crowds and demonstrations; exercise caution when walking or driving at night; carry proper identification; review your personal security plans and monitor local media for updates.”
