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".

This is a great piece of history, which is dear to our hearts as people and very much appreciated.

Many thanks to the people who worked hard in the past and those who are still making efforts to keep the institution.

The labour is obviouly worth it. We are proud of you all.

A lot still to be done, with the motivation of the champions of this course, others will follow as well to maintain the institution

May God continue to keep the edifice for development of future generations to the glory of God and the benefits of our fatherland.
