The United States has authorised the relocation of U.S. government employees and their families from Abuja over potential terr#rist att@cke
“On October 25, 2022, the U.S. Department of State granted authorised departure status to Embassy Abuja, which permits the voluntary departure of family members and certain employees due to the heightened risk of terrorist attacks,” the terr#r alert said.
It added, “The U.S. Embassy in Abuja continues to have limited ability to provide emergency assistance to U.S. citizens in Nigeria. The U.S. Consulate in Lagos continues to provide routine and emergency services to U.S. citizens in Nigeria.”
The latest terr#r alert followed similar security warnings from the U.S. and the United Kingdom on Sunday of a possible terr#rist att@ck in the Federal Capital Territory, targeting government buildings, places of worship and schools, among others.
The terr#r alert, however, was dismissed by information minister Lai Mohammed. He revealed that Abuja and the country as a whole was safe.
