Contrary to a set of travel safety tips making rounds on Facebook, the Nigerian Police have clarified that these guidelines did not originate from their department.

The circulated message, seemingly offering safety advice for travelers and purportedly attributed to the Nigerian police, includes suggestions such as restricting travel between 9 am and 3 pm, modifying phone contacts, and dressing modestly.

Signed as the “Department of Force Intelligence (DFI),” this message has been widely shared across multiple Facebook posts and groups, amassing considerable attention online.
