Nigeria Alerte de sécurité

Youth protest reported in Abuja May 11; heightened security measures and associated disruptions possible

TIMEFRAME expected from 11/5/2020, 12h00 until 12/5/2020, 11h59 (Africa/Lagos). COUNTRY/REGION Abuja

Event

According to local sources, a protest has been reported in Abuja at approximately 10:30 (local time) on Monday, May 11. Participants, largely youths, reportedly demonstrated at Karimu Street, located in the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC), barricading roads and organizing burnfires. The reason behind the protest remains unclear. Security forces have been deployed in the area.

A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are expected in the vicinity of the demonstration in the coming hours. Clashes between opposing political groups cannot be ruled out.

Advice

Individuals in Abuja are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all protests due to the risk of violence, and adhere to any instructions issued by local authorities.

The security environment in Nigeria is complex and is particularly challenging in the northeast and extreme south of the country due to the presence of armed groups, high crime rates, and the risk of kidnapping. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel to such areas.
