Avoid Travelling To Anambra, UK Warns Citizens 

The United Kingdom has warned its citizens in Nigeria from travelling to Anambra State.

The warning came two days after an attack on the convoy of United State consulate workers in the Ogbaru Local Government Area of the state by yet-to-be-identified gunmen on Tuesday.

It would be recalled that the convoy carried nine Nigerian nationals: five employees of the U.S. Mission to Nigeria and four members of the Nigeria Police Force.

They were travelling in advance of a planned visit by U.S. Mission personnel to a U.S.-funded flood response project in Anambra.

Three US consulate officials and four policemen were killed in the incident, while one consulate official is still missing.

The UK issued an advisory on its website on Thursday warning its nationals in Nigeria against  travelling to Anambra State.

Apart from Anambra, the advisory also warned against travel to Delta, Bayelsa, Rivers, Akwa Ibom, Rivers and Cross River states.

Meanwhile, the UK also announced the appointment of Richard Montgomery as the new British High Commissioner to Nigeria.

This was contained in a press release by the British High Commission in Nigeria on Thursday.
