Nigerian government officials indefinitely closed the Seme border crossing along the border with Benin, according to reports on Tuesday, August 20. Authorities stated the move was due to the trafficking of illicit goods and other smuggling activities in the area.
Additional security patrols were reportedly deployed to enforce the measure and secure the border. It was not immediately made clear when the border crossing would reopen.
Individuals in the area are advised to adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and remain vigilant for militant and criminal behavior.
