According to Trip.com, this country is on first place on the list of dangerous places, with issuance of travel warnings by the U.S. Department of State. Extremist groups such as ISIS have been a serious threat to public venues in the country, and this includes tourism and recreational sites. The groups normally target various transport modes as well as women solo travelers, so the key to protecting yourself: do not go there alone.
There are two extremist groups operating in the country, Islamic State West Africa and Boko Haram. They are responsible for the kidnappings and violence that occur in the country, especially northern Nigeria. They also target areas having dense populations such as restaurants, schools, churches and hotels.
