Army-Shiites Clash: US calls for restraint on all sides

The United States Embassy in Nigeria has temporarily suspended Visas and American Citizen Services in its Abuja office.

In a statement released on its website ng.usembassy.gov, the US Embassy said the decision was due to reasons beyond their our control, but was also quick to tell the general public that consular functions at the Lagos office are not affected and will continue.

The statement urged applicants in the Northern region of Nigeria to contact the US Embassy Office in Lagos for immediate emergency travels. The statement as appeared on their website reads:

“Due to reasons beyond our control we are temporarily unable to provide regular services for visas and American Citizen Services in Abuja, but other offices within the Embassy remain open.  Please note that consular functions at the U.S. Consulate Lagos are not affected and will continue.

Until further notice, applicants are encouraged to contact the Consular Office in Lagos for immediate emergency travel.  Please monitor the Facebook and Webpage of the U.S. Embassy for updates on consular operations. Scheduled visa and ACS applicants for Abuja will be contacted for rescheduling.

American citizens in northern Nigeria with urgent travel needs who are travelling before Eid-el-Kabir and who are willing to re-schedule their travel through Lagos should contact the ACS office at Consulate Lagos (01460 3600 and LagosACS@state.gov) to discuss their options.  Those travelling after August 23 should follow-up with AbujaACS@state.gov  to confirm their appointments closer to their appointment date” The statement concludes.
