On Tuesday, the US government issued a travel warning alerting its citizens to potential extremist attacks and kidnappings in Northern Togo.
Due to regular militant strikes, Americans have been advised from visiting northern Togo and areas near to the borders with Burkina Faso and Benin, according to the alert released by the US State Department.
“Attacks may occur with little or no warning. The current travel policy for embassy personnel prohibits travel north of the town of Dapaong, along with the district of Kpendjal and Kpendjal-Ouest without special authorisation,” the advisory said.
Also, it advised Americans not to visit the communities of Sokode, Bafilo, and Mango close to the Benin border.
Residents of northern Togo recently left their homes after 10 people were slain in a militant raid on two villages bordering Benin.
