They can easily become a target to kidnap with a ransom. There are no safe public transports nor taxis.-Because of the occurrence of security incidents and very limited safe housing options, the international staff has been requested to live in a designated place. International recruited staff live in a UN shared guest house protected by armed personnel. Ogoja has no electricity and relay on generators for those who can afford it. -The nearest airports are a 3.5-hour drive to Enugu (1 international flight only) or a 5-hour drive to Calabar (domestic flights).
