U.S. Warns Citizens of Elevated Threats to Hotels in Nigeria
U.S. Issues Alert on Security Concerns at Nigerian Hotels

The United States has issued a firm cautionary message to its citizens currently residing in Nigeria, emphasizing the presence of heightened security concerns pertaining to prominent hotels located in major urban centers within the country.

This advisory was disseminated through an emergency communication aimed at American nationals, dated November 3rd.

The advisory highlights the active efforts of Nigerian security agencies in addressing the aforementioned threat. It urges U.S. citizens to exercise increased caution while patronizing major hotels, maintain awareness of their immediate surroundings, adopt a low-profile demeanor, and consult the latest travel advisory for Nigeria before making hotel reservations.

The communication states, “The U.S. Government has received credible information regarding an elevated risk associated with prominent hotels situated in Nigeria’s major urban areas. The Nigerian security services are diligently working to counter this threat. Consequently, the U.S. Department of State advises U.S. citizens to take this information into consideration when arranging accommodations or visiting major hotels in Nigeria.”

Additionally, the advisory provides contact information for the U.S. embassy in Abuja and the consulate in Lagos, ensuring that any U.S. citizens in need of assistance can readily access the appropriate support channels.

It is worth noting that back in October, the United States issued a global advisory, urging all its citizens to exercise caution while traveling to various destinations worldwide. Nigeria was categorized under the third-tier caution alert, recommending travelers to reconsider their travel plans.
