The Foreign Ministry has warned Turkish citizens to defer non-essential travel to Libya due to recent armed clashes in Benghazi and Tripoli, as well as to Nigeria because of a recent rise in terror and kidnapping incidents.
The Foreign Ministry posted separate warnings concerning these two countries on its official website on May 26. The citizens who are currently in Libya and who will still travel to the country despite the warning should take the required measures and be vigilant with their safety, the ministry said.
As for Nigeria, the ministry particularly cited the states: Yobe, Borno, Adamawa, Jigawa, Bauchi, Gombe, Kaduna, Nasarawa, Benue and Taraba – and said citizens who are already in these states should particularly be careful in regard to terrorist activities and kidnappings. They should also follow the warnings and announcements from the ministry and Turkish Embassy in Abuja, the statement said.
Likewise, the citizens in Libya should carefully follow warnings and announcements from the ministry and Turkish Embassy in Tripoli, it said.
In emergency situations, citizens in these two countries should contact the ministry through the Consular Call Center (00 90 312 – 292 29 29) which is available 24 hours, the statement said
