According to the US embassy’s website alert, the federal capital territory (FCT) is under attack.
According to the US embassy, terrorists may target markets, schools, places of worship, and government buildings.
Recreational facilities such as hotels, bars, clubs, and restaurants are also mentioned as potential targets.
Athletic gatherings, transportation terminals, law enforcement facilities, and international organization property were also named as targets.
Because of the security alert, the US has announced that its embassy in the FCT will provide fewer services until further notice.
The United States has advised its citizens to avoid all non-essential travel and movements and to remain vigilant.
Americans were advised to avoid crowds, carry identification at all times, review their personal security plans, and keep their cell phones charged in case of an emergency.
On October 5, the United States issued a travel warning to its citizens, advising them to reconsider traveling to Nigeria “due to crime, terrorism, civil unrest, kidnapping, and maritime crime.”

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