Prince Charles Cancels trip to Jos Over Security Concerns

Prince Charles Cancels trip to Jos Over Security Concerns

The Prince of Wales has canceled his scheduled trip to Jos, the Plateau State Capital, over security concerns, following months of deadly communal, ethno-religious and sectarian violence in the region. Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, arrived in the Nigerian capital Abuja on Tuesday, 7/11/2018 on the tail end of a West African tour that has included Gambia and Ghana, and were expected to travel to Jos on Thursday to discuss peace-building and conflict resolution.

According to one of the British foreign office spokesperson, the decision to cancel was taken upon advice from the Nigerian government and others involved in security and operational aspects of the visit. Jos, of about one million people, is nestled in the hills of central Nigeria and has frequently been the scene of violence. It has long been a hotbed of ethnic, sectarian and religious tensions.
