August 4, 2016 – US Lists 20 Nigerian States Unsafe For US Citizens To Travel  Due To Robberies & Kidnappings

The US government has warned her citizens to avoid travelling to some key Nigerian states for now due to limited ability of the US Mission to provide help to Americans in those states.

According to an advisory published online yesterday, the no-go states include;

  1. Borno
  2. Adamawa
  3. Yobe
  4. Bauchi
  5. Bayelsa
  6. Edo
  7. Delta
  8. Gombe
  9. Imo
  10. Jigawa
  11. Kano
  12. Kaduna
  13. Katsina
  14. Kebbi
  15. Kogi
  16. Niger
  17. Plateau
  18. Rivers
  19. Sokoto
  20. Zamfara

The travel advisory particularly urged vigilance around government security facilities; churches, mosques, other places of worship; locations where large crowds may gather such as hotels, clubs, bars, restaurants, markets, shopping malls; and other areas frequented by expatriates and foreign travellers.

It noted that kidnappings and terrorism remain a threat to the security of American citizens in Nigeria.

    Nigeria president, you see what you have done? Because of your inability to provide good security in Nigeria, US government has warned its citizens to stop coming to the states listed above. Giant of Africa is no more. I’m weeping seriously.

    Ah! This is very embarrassing but We can only blush at the accusation without challenging same. I think the report is even kind considering the goings on in places like Ikorodu in recent weeks.while praying for God’s intervention, we also call on the Government to address the issue PLEeeeeeAAAAAsssssSSSeeeeE!!!!!

    Congrats to our leaders! Hypocrites without shame nor conscience. I won’t be surprised to hear a government official arguing over this and calling it mendacious and unfair for the US to have done this.

    We are in a country where truth is dreaded and avoided like an Egyptian plague. They say democracy is a process and not a state; they say that it took the US 250years to get to where they are today. Is that not an advantage to us? Must it take use the same number of years when we’re lucky to have the forerunners who had done the whole experiments and trials and errors? If I want to build an aeroplane now, do I have to go repeating the same experiments that the Wright Brothers had done?

    My spirit is vexed whenever our leaders quote all this their nonsense because that is only the excuse they provide in order to continue looting and other corrupt practices. The grim state of hardship and insecurity in the nation today is a direct report on the resolute negligence and profligacy of our government.

      Larry no place is safe and it is proven that the US is safer to live than there! I don’t know where you are getting your information from about white kids killing parents every day and raping sisters! Do they have murders, rape, molestation, child marriages etc in Nigeria? The US is looking out for the safety of their citizens, something the Nigerian government don’t do! What are they doing to eradicate boko haram? Have they rescued the Chibok girls who were kidnapped more than two years ago? I’m proud to be an American and thanks to the US for looking out for their citizens!!!

    Why do u guys blame it on Buhari?? this case of kidnappings and bombing is on the air ever before he was crown as the Presido.
    If we need change we must change ourselves.
    The US are right, coz the people who were been kidnap most are the Expertrate.
    So why are we surprise?? and they are not even saying their citizen should not come but telling them to avoid some particular states…EKO ONI BAJE OO
