The British High Commission in Nigeria maintains close contact with the Nigerian authorities on security issues, including terrorism. It also maintains a network of over 100 British community liaison officers throughout Nigeria, and stays in close contact with those who employ large numbers of British citizens. Like other British diplomatic posts, the High Commission has emergency plans to guide response to incidents involving British citizens. Information on potential security threats, including terrorism, is included in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's (FCO) travel advice for Nigeria, available on the FCO's website: www.fco.gov.uk
