Abuja - The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) alerted participants on risks of attending next week's World Economic Forum (WEF) on Africa.
This follows the bomb explosions in Nyanya out outside Abuja.
"The 14 April terrorist bomb attack on a bus park in the Nyanya area, on the eastern outskirts of Abuja, was followed by a further explosion in the same area on the evening of 1 May. Both attacks caused multiple casualties and extra security in the area has caused severe traffic congestion. Keep clear of the affected areas for the time being," the alert read.
It added that the Nigerian government has assured those attending the World Economic Forum on 7-9 May that heavy security will be in place for the event.
"There will be restrictions on movement during this period and the heavy security presence for the Forum itself may limit the ability of the Nigerian security services to react quickly and effectively in other parts of Abuja. Remain alert to possible disturbance, take care and avoid crowded places.
