Scary: US Warns Boko Haram May Attack Sheraton Hotel In Lagos

Read what Vanguard wrote;

(AFP) – US diplomats in Nigeria on Friday claimed that “groups associated with terrorism” could be planning to attack a hotel in the financial capital, Lagos, in a travel note to citizens warning of security risks.

“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,” the US Consulate General in Lagos said in an emailed advisory.

“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. US citizens are cautioned to avoid these hotels at this time.”

The warning comes a day after a car bomb exploded in Nigeria’s capital Abuja, killing 19 people and wounding scores more, just yards (metres) from a bus station where a previous bombing on April 14 killed at least 75.

Boko Haram claimed the April 14 attack and both bombings have raised fears about a possible change in tactics and targets by the Islamist militants, whose increasingly deadly, five-year insurgency has largely been confined to the north.

Concern has mounted that the violence could spread to other parts of the country given the military’s apparent inability to stem the bloodshed.

A hotel attack by Islamist extremists would not be unprecedented.

In November 2008, heavily armed gunmen attacked three luxury hotels, a railway station, Jewish centre and popular tourist cafe in the Indian city of Mumbai, killing 166 and wounding more than 300.

Sheraton has two hotels in Lagos: the Sheraton Hotel Lagos in the Ikeja area of the city near the international airport and the Four Points by Sheraton.

The latter is situated on Victoria Island off the expressway to Lekki, both of which are home to many wealthier Nigerians and expatriates.

The US travel advisory said the security situation in Nigeria remained “fluid and unpredictable”, warning its citizens to stay away from all travel to Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states which have borne the brunt of the violence.


All three are in northeast Nigeria and have been under a state of emergency since May last year.

  15. All the south west governors really need to meet and produce a master plan on how to prevent BH from causing casualties in the SW.

    We should infiltrate all our neighborhoods that the northerners lives , from Idi-Araba to Agege to Shagamu to all the areas known and unknown that a typical northerner likes to stay in the SW.

    Depending on Jonathan will be suicidal.
    Jonathan does not know what he is doing,
    Jonathan has reached a point of no return.

    Jonathan just set up a committee to find all the kidnapped girls.
    Committees upon committees and no tangible progress being made.

    Instead of securing the border with Cameroun where those terrorists are operating, he is setting up another "come and chop and clean mouth" useless committee.

    I bet, that committee will achieve nothing.

    Why can't we put our resources together and put blockage on the borders where BH is operating so that nothing goes in and out?

    Jonathan has reduced us to sitting ducks for BH to rain havoc on.

    I pray that all the SW governors can put politics aside and team up on how to tackle BH.
    Failure to do that will be catastrophic as the SW is highly populated..

    Only fools will not see that attacking SW is one thing that BH is planning to do.
