Travel Advisory: June 2021

Armed robbery attacks pose a huge threat for business travellers, particularly outside the metropolis where government security force presence is reduced.

Night-time travel along that axis carries higher levels of risk as well.

Boko haram elements fleeing from the government security force (GSF) in Niger state have been noted operating in the state, particularly along the Nasarawa/Benue border from which they have been launching attacks.

Local news media may not provide real-time information on happenings in major supply routes in the axis, travellers may check-in with a local resource and at determined intervals while in transit.

Situational awareness is strongly recommended, and night-time travel should be discouraged.

A drilled journey management plan is advised, and general travel should be conducted between the times of 0800hrs-1700hrs.
