US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has reportedly cut short his Africa trip to attend to “pressing issues” in Washington.
Bloomberg reported that he was ending his trip early shortly after he left Kenya for Chad.
Tillerson was to travel to Chad and Nigeria on Monday after leaving Kenya as scheduled but he is said to have scrapped plans to spend the night in Nigeria.
During his stay in Kenya, he fell ill and was forced to cancel his engagements on March 10.
“The Secretary is not feeling well after a long couple of days working on major issues back home, such as North Korea, and has cancelled his events for the day,” spokesman Steve Goldstein said.
