“Terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in Nigeria,” the statement from the UK office noted.

“Most attacks occur in the northeast, particularly in Borno (including central Maiduguri and along access routes connecting the city to other major towns and along the Niger border, including in Damasak), Yobe, including the eastern LGAs bordering Borno State both north and south of the Damaturu road), and Adamawa States.

“There have also been significant attacks in Gombe, Kano, Kaduna, Jos and Bauchi States and in the Federal capital, Abuja.

“The terrorist threat across eastern Yobe and Borno State is high, with frequent recent attacks.

“Terrorist groups carried out attacks in North East Nigeria during the February 2019 election period, and further attacks are likely. We continue to advise against all travel to Borno and Yobe States.”

In his reaction, Fani-Kayode berated Buhari and his supporters for the recent development.

In a tweet on his handle, he said, “Finally this is what it has come to. Buhari and his supporters should clap for themselves!”
