Elections: US Embassy alerts citizens in Nigeria on possible protests
Written by Taiwo Adekola on February 21, 2023
The United States Embassy in Nigeria has alerted its citizens in the country on possible protests and restricted movements, on February 25 and March 11, being the days for presidential/National Assembly as well as governorship/State Assembly elections.
In a notice on its website, the Embassy advised its nationals to avoid rallies as “they can turn violent with little or no notice.”
It will be recalled that the federal government a few months ago, had issues with the US and Uk government over security alert raised about some Nigerian cities, especially the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, advising their citizens to steer clear.
