Remain Calm, Take Responsibility For Your Personal Security – Nigerian Embassy In Ukraine Tells Nigerians


Nigerian citizens in Ukraine have been urged to remain calm and take responsibility for their personal protection and safety, according to the Nigerian Embassy in Ukraine.

The warning came in a statement issued today, February 24, when Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a military action in Ukraine, with explosions heard across the country shortly after and the country’s foreign minister prediction of a “full-scale invasion.”

The statement read;

“The Embassy urges Nigerian nationals resident in Ukraine to remain calm but be very vigilant and be responsible for their personal security and safety.

The Embassy wishes to add that should any of Nigerian nationals considers the situation as emotionally disturbing, such nationals may wish to temporary relocate to anywhere considered safe by private arrangements. They should, however, ensure that they do all the needful to validate all their resident documents for ease of return to the country when desired.

In addition, in case of students seeking such temporary relocation, they are enjoined to seek proper clearance and guarantee from their respective institutions, authorities/agents on the way forward in respect to their studies during this period and/or thereafter.

For those who still consider it appropriate to remain in the country, be assured that the embassy remains open for its consular duties and responsibilities at all times. It will always avail you of updates when necessary.” it read
