Event

Suspected Boko Haram militants killed 30 people and wounded several others in an attack on Auno (Borno state) on Sunday night (local time), February 9. The militants abducted an unspecified number of women and children in the assault and burned at least 18 vehicles.

Similar militant attacks are to be expected in Borno state over the near term.

Context

Although regional counterinsurgency efforts begun in 2015 and led by West African states Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon, and Niger have diminished Boko Haram's effective territorial control, northeastern Nigeria remains Boko Haram's stronghold and is host to most of the group's militant activity.

Advice

Individuals in Nigeria are advised to monitor developments to the situation, remain vigilant for militant activity, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.

The security environment in Nigeria remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
