Nigerians visiting Europe and the US have been warned by the Federal Government to take extra security measures to protect their valuables.
At the fifth installment of the “President Muhammadu Buhari (PMB) Administration Scorecard 2015-2023 Series” on Monday in Abuja, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, provided the recommendation.
Remember that the Ministry of Information and Culture organized the scorecard series, and Dr. Mohammad Abubakar, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, gave presentations at the fifth edition.
Mohammed stated in his opening statement that the advice had become crucial in light of recent incidents involving the theft of Nigerian travelers’ property, particularly cash and international passports, in the US and certain European nations.

The minister claimed that because the occurrences were occurring at an alarmingly rapid rate, counsel was required.
“The most recent victims of this were travelers to the UK, most of whom were dispossessed of their belongings at high-brow shops, particularly in the high street of Oxford.
“We have therefore decided to advise Nigerians traveling to Europe and the United States to take extra precautions to avoid being dispossessed of their belongings.
“This is not your typical travel advisory. Issuing such is the prerogative of our embassies/high commissions as well as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
“It is merely a piece of advice to Nigerians who may be visiting the affected parts of the world,” he said.
He explained that the scorecard series was created to highlight the accomplishments of President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
