The US and the UK have closed their consulates in Nigeria's biggest city, Lagos, citing "security fears".
A spokesman at the US embassy in the capital, Abuja, said: "The embassy is reacting to a security incident and we thought it prudent to close."
The Foreign Office in London said the UK had shut its mission in Lagos as a precaution following the closure of the US consulate, which is nearby.
The threat was of an "international dimension", a diplomat told the BBC.
No further details have been released.
Nigerian police are investigating the "incident".
