#Flood: Don’t travel to Nigeria — Australia warns citizens
The Australian government has warned its citizens to desist from travelling to Nigeria over the recent flooding that has ravaged some parts of the country.
According to its travel advisory on the consulate’s website on Wednesday, October 19, over 20 states including Abuja were listed for Australians to avoid.
“There have been significant casu@lties and widespread dam@ge 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 terr@rism, kidn@pping, crime and civil unrest remains high throughout Nigeria.
If, despite our advice, you undertake travel within Nigeria, research routes and get professional security advice and support before departing.
Reconsider your need to travel to Nigeria overall, including the capital Abuja and surrounding areas, due to high thre@ts of terr@rist att@ck and kidn@pping, the vol@tile security situation, possible vi@lent civil unrest and high levels of vi@lent crime.
Do not travel to Adamawa, Anambra, Akwa Ibom, Bauchi, Bayelsa, Borno, Cross Rivers, Delta, Gombe, Imo, Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Kebbi, Niger, Plateau, Rivers, Sokoto, Taraba, Yobe and Zamfara States,” travel advisory read.
