Government warns citizens against travelling to Nigerian capital

Portugal’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has warned citizens against the risks of travelling to the capital of Nigeria, due to the reported possibility of a terrorist attack. Already ‘left hanging’ to a certain degree by Nigeria’s constant failings to supply natural gas as per long-term contracts, Portugal is one of a number of countries updating travel advice to citizens. Spain, for example, increases the warnings, saying: “no area of Nigeria is free from security risks”. There is a risk of “attacks, kidnappings and high levels of insecurity for citizens” in many parts of the country, “including areas previously considered safe, such as the capital, Abuja.”
