Event

According to UN officials, three aid workers kidnapped by militants along the volatile Maiduguri-Monguno highway in Borno state on Sunday, December 22, were released in northeastern Nigeria alongside civilians on Thursday, January 16.

Further kidnappings of aid workers, foreigners, and military and police personnel are likely in northeastern Nigeria in 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, concentrating the majority of its activities.

Advice

Individuals in Nigeria are advised to 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.
