Nigeria Travel Guide
We advise against all but essential travel to Anambra State. Localised outbreaks of civil unrest can occur at short notice. Details and advice are circulated via the British High Commission's Community Liaison Officers' network.
Violent crime is prevalent in the south of the country, including Lagos.
You should be aware of the threat from terrorism in Nigeria. A statement issued by Usama Bin Laden in February 2003 called for an uprising by Muslims in a number of countries including Nigeria. He suggested that "faithful Muslims" rise up against the Nigerian Government.
You should be aware of the global risk of indiscriminate terrorist attacks, which could be against civilian targets.
We strongly recommend that you obtain comprehensive travel and medical insurance before travelling.
