FG Issues Warning To Nigerians Travelling To UK, US

Nigerians travelling to the United Kingdom and the US have been warned by the federal government to be security conscious.

The warning came from the Minister of Culture and Information, Lai Mohammed, who expressed worry over the rate at which citizens have been losing cash, international passports and belongings in the two countries.

Speaking at the 5th edition of the PMB Administration Scorecard (2015-2023) Series in Abuja, he disclosed that the most recent instance is that of travellers to the UK, most of whom were dispossessed of their belongings at high-brow shops, particularly in the high street of Oxford.

“It has come to the attention of the government that Nigerian travellers to the United States and some countries in Europe are having their belongings, especially money and international passports, stolen at an increasingly high rate.

“The most recent victims of this are travellers to the UK, most of whom were dispossessed of their belongings at high-brow shops, particularly in the high street of Oxford.

“We have therefore decided to advise Nigerians travelling to Europe and the United States to take extra precautions to
avoid being dispossessed of their belongings.

“This is not your typical travel advisory. Issuing such is the prerogative of our embassies/high commissions as well as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

“It is merely a piece of advice to Nigerians who may be visiting the affected parts of the world”, Mohammed said.
