The US urged its citizens to reconsider travel to Nigeria “due to crime, terrorism, civil unrest, kidnapping, and maritime crime, which includes kidnappings, hijackings, boardings, theft, etc. Some areas have increased risk.

“Do Not Travel to Borno and Yobe States and Northern Adamawa State due to terrorism. Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Kaduna, Kano, and Yobe states due to kidnapping.

“Coastal areas of Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Cross Rivers, Delta, and Rivers states (except for Port Harcourt) due to crime, civil unrest, kidnapping, and maritime crime,” US advised its citizens.

It added that the country might be unable to provide emergency services to its citizens in many areas of Nigeria due to security conditions.

Meanwhile, in recent reports, Nigeria is being terrorized by different groups such as Boko Haram, Fulani Herdsmen, etc and as a result, thousands of people have been victimized.

Also, the Nigerian security system has resorted to harassment, subjugation, extortions, kidnapping, and murder of innocent citizens thereby, imposing insecurity and discomfort in the country.
