The Nigerian Embassy in Ukraine has asked its citizens in the East European country to remain calm and take responsibility for their security and safety.

The warning which was contained in the embassy notice on Thursday, also advised Nigerians in the country to be very vigilant.

The notice comes after Russian President, Vladimir Putin, who had earlier massed between 150,000 and 200,000 troops along the borders of Ukraine, announced a military operation in Ukraine in the early hours of Thursday.

Shortly after the announcement, explosions were heard in Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv, and several other cities.

The notice reads: “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,” the embassy also said.
