The United Kingdom (UK), on Sunday, updated its terrorism alert to citizens in Nigeria.

The UK warned of an increased threat of terrorist attack in the federal capital territory (FCT), Abuja.

UK citizens were admonished to stay alert, “consider movements carefully, follow the local news and the advice of security authorities”.

The foreign travel advisory cautioned against visits to markets, shopping malls, hotels, bars, restaurants, football viewing centres, displacement camps, transport terminals (including train networks), government buildings — and schools.

Meanwhile, the British High Commission in Abuja has said only critical staff will be allowed access to its facility on Monday, October 24.

In a notice the BHC said its decision would be binding on all staff.

Parents were also “strongly” advised against sending their children to school.

The development comes on the heels of the United States (US) warning to its citizens about the possibility of terror attacks in the FCT.

Recall that the US, on Sunday, issued a security alert, citing an “elevated risk of terror attacks” in the country.
