Ghana’s Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration Ministry has cautioned citizens against travelling to Abuja, Nigeria, except where necessary, due to security risks.

In a travel advisory issued on November 16, 2022, the ministry said there have been rising security concerns in the Nigerian city, leading to directives by local authorities for hotels operating in residential buildings to shut down.
