The United States of America embassy in Nigeria has said that there is an elevated risk of terror attacks in Nigeria, specifically in Abuja.

The US issued a security alert on Sunday, citing “elevated risk of terror attacks” in parts of the country.

The US Embassy said targets may include but are not limited to, government buildings, places of worship, schools, markets, shopping malls, hotels, bars, restaurants, athletic gatherings, transport terminals, law enforcement facilities, and international organizations.

“The U.S. Embassy will offer reduced services until further notice,” the United States Embassy said.

On October 5, the US released a travel advisory advising its citizens to reconsider travel to Nigeria “due to crime, terrorism, civil unrest, kidnapping, and maritime crime”.

Americans were warned against traveling to northern states like Borno, Yobe, Adamawa, Bauchi, Gombe, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, and Zamfara.

Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Cross River, Delta, and Rivers were the southern states listed as dangerous for travel.
