Intelix Security Briefing: 19/01/20
Target Area: The Philippines, Nigeria, UAE, Middle East, W. Africa.

  1. The Gambia: It has warned its ex leader, Yahya Jammeh, not to return. Jammeh was forced into exile by Gambia’s neighbours, with efforts involving Nigeria. His return is unlikely to be supported by those countries. The Gambia continues to be a stable country & a popular tourist destination. Read more: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-51082371
  2. Nigeria: a little rift has emerged between British Airways [BA] & the Federal Aviation Authority of Nigeria [FAAN] over the diversion of a BA flight from Nigeria’s Murtala Mohammed Airport [LOS] to Ghana’s Kotoko International Airport, in Accra. BA alleges landing conditions at LOS were unsafe. FAAN allegedly temporarily closed the runway at LOS. They deny this. BA is a leading global airline with an excellent safety record. FAAN, on the other hand has had safety issues over the years. We’re monitoring this issue. Read more: https://nairametrics.com/2020/01/11/british-airways-faan-divided-over-flight-diversion/
  3. Lake Chad Area: similar to Nigeria’s North East, this area is a hotbed of religious rebellion. The Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) operates in this area & continues military interdiction missions, support by the French military. Avoid non-essential travel to this area.

  5. The Philippines: The Taal volcano has been spewing ash & the country is preparing for a major eruption. Factor in possible spillover effects into the rest of the country from a logistics perspective, if travelling there, or around that region. If you have loved ones inns region, ensure they are safe & have taken the necessary precautions.
