By Lucky Uwakina (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Government of the United States has cautioned its citizens against travelling to Nigeria due to the worsening security situation in some sections of the country.

This warning was contained in its latest travel advisory in which it decried the spate of crime, terrorism, civil unrest, kidnapping, and maritime crime, stressing that some areas have increased risk.

“Violent crime – such as armed robbery, assault, carjacking, kidnapping, hostage-taking, banditry, and rape – is common throughout the country.

“Kidnappings for ransom occur frequently, often targeting dual national citizens who have returned to Nigeria for a visit, as well as U.S. citizens with perceived wealth. Kidnapping gangs have also stopped victims on interstate roads,” the U.S. government said.
