#EndSARS: US Lagos Consulate shut


The United States Mission in Nigeria on Tuesday closed its consulate in Lagos for Tuesday and Wednesday, following the 24-hour curfew imposed by the Lagos State Government.

The US Embassy in a travel warning published on its website also warned its citizens to avoid protest areas in Nigeria and exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings or protests.

The embassy noted that most demonstrations had been peaceful, but added that some had become violent, leading to the shutdown of major roads and bridges.

“Multiple demonstrations are ongoing across Nigeria – to include areas within the consular districts of Abuja and Lagos. Although most demonstrations are peaceful, some have become violent and have shut down major thoroughfares and bridges.

“Consulate General Lagos is closed for the rest of today (Tuesday) and tomorrow (Wednesday).

“We continue to urge all US citizens to avoid areas around protests and demonstrations, and to check local media for updates and traffic advisories. Continue to be vigilant and avoid areas affected by the protests.”
