Attention all American citizens:
American citizens are reminded that according to recent press reports Niger Delta militants may plan to escalate their activities in regions beyond their previous primary target areas in the Niger Delta region. Possible targets could include expatriate personnel, Western businesses or facilities and locales visited by tourists and foreigners in other regions of Nigeria. We continue to advise all Americans to review their security procedures, remain vigilant to their surroundings, and report any specific incidences of targeted violence toward U.S. citizens or facilities. For telephone numbers for Embassy in Abuja or the U. S. Consulate General in Lagos see last paragraph.
