Benson, with the fuel subsidy reinstated things have calmed somewhgat, but the situation remains very volatile in Nigeria. I note that at the height of the strike and protests there were shots fired by police in Abeokuta - this is the kind of thing that could happen again and at short notice.
Regardless of that, there are issues relating to your ability to obtain travel insurance for your trip to Nigeria. The British, US and UK governments (among others) recommend against all but essential travel to Nigeria (and even advise against all travel to some parts). If you travel despite this advice it is unlikely that you'll be covered by your travel insurance. Worst case scenario, if you are injured it is unlikely that you will be able to receive any emergency medical assistance. More realistically, given the well known disruption to international and domestic travel in Nigeria, it is very unlikely you'll be successful in making any claim for delay, cancellation or additional expenses arising from the withdrawal of services.
Personally, unless I had a very pressing reason to be in Nigeria this week, I'd postpone.... but you have to make that assessment for yourself and your circumstances. almost 7 years ago
