On 5, 6 and 7 July 2015 there were suicide bomb attacks in Jos (Plateau State), Kano (Kano State) and Zaria (Kaduna State) respectively.
There is a high threat from terrorism. Most attacks occur in the north east, particularly in Borno, Yobe, Adamawa and Gombe States. There have also been significant attacks in Kano, Kaduna, Jos, Bauchi, Abuja and Gombe. Further attacks could occur anywhere. Major urban centres in the North of Nigeria are particularly at risk, including Bauchi, Kano and Kaduna, and Abuja as the Federal Capital.
