In a travel advisory posted on United States Embassy website, American citizens were warned to avoid states like Yobe, Borno and Adamawa.

The warning also fingered a group associated with terrorism planning to carry out terrorist attack on Sheraton Hotel in Lagos.

The travel warning reads:

The Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the risks of travel to Nigeria and recommends that U.S. citizens avoid all travel to Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe states because of the May 14, 2013 state of emergency proclamation for those three states by the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. As of late April, groups associated with terrorism allegedly planned to mount an unspecified attack against the Sheraton Hotel in Nigeria, near the city of Lagos. There was no further information regarding which of the two Sheraton Hotels in Lagos was the possible target, or if both of the Sheraton Hotels are possible targets. There is no further information regarding the timing or method of attack. U.S. citizens are cautioned to avoid these hotels at this time.

The security situation in the country remains fluid and unpredictable. The U.S. Department of State strongly urges U.S. citizens in Nigeria to keep personal safety and health in the forefront of your planning. We remind U.S. citizens to review your personal security plans; remain aware of your surroundings, including local events; and monitor local news stations for updates. Maintain a high level of vigilance and take appropriate steps to enhance your personal security.

The Department strongly advises U.S. citizens who travel to or reside in Nigeria to enroll in the State Department’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). U.S. citizens without internet access may enroll directly with the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate. STEP enrollment gives you the latest security updates, and makes it easier for the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate to contact you in an emergency.

United States cares so much about the safety of her citizens.

May God deliver this great nation from the evil ones.

    What a crying shame for Nigeria.I pray our leaders borrow a leaf or copy from the Americans how to value their citizens all over the world, Pretend a little bit Nigeria govt as if you truly cared and help find those little girls that were kidnapped from their school.But no,they can’t copy the good stuff.

    I also pray they improve their security in and out of the said place.

    Sentiments, selfishness, greed, religious differences is the reason why Nigeria is lacking behind. Nigerians have forgotten that God want to see us together that is why He put us together.
    India for example has more population and religions than our country but they aren’t killing themselves, so why in the name of religious or ethnicity will we be fighting ourselves for goodness sake.
    The only way forward is to embrace peace and understanding and Nigeria will be a better place for all.
