The warning was given in the latest travel advisory amid the growing level of insecurity in the country.

There has also been increased tension due to events that have been put in place to mark the first anniversary of the #Endsars protest and the trial of Biafra leader Nnamdi Kanu.

The UK’s travel advisory is contained in a recent statement that was released by its Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office (FCDO).

The government urged its citizens to watch out for news in local media and avoid large gatherings.

A portion of the statement reads:

“There may be protests and a heightened security presence in major cities such as Lagos and Abuja. In parallel, the high-profile trial date of a separatist leader is also scheduled for 21 October in Abuja. There may be additional protests and a heightened security presence in Abuja and the South-east for this reason. In all areas affected, you should monitor local media, and avoid any demonstrations or large gatherings.”
