Nigeria travel advice

A significant attack took place in Gombe City, Gombe State on 13-14 February.

There is a high threat from terrorism. Most attacks occur in the north east, particularly in Borno, Yobe, Adamawa and Gombe states. There have also been significant attacks in Kano, Kaduna, Jos, Bauchi, Abuja and Lagos. Further attacks could occur anywhere.

You should avoid public places where crowds gather, including religious gatherings and insecure public spaces like markets and transport hubs. In recent years, attacks have taken place around religious and public holidays in public or crowded places, including places of worship. You should be particularly vigilant during these periods. Avoid affected areas in the immediate aftermath of any attack.

A heavy security presence often indicates areas of particularly high risk.
