U.S. issued a travel advisory warning Nigeria’s Boko Haram terrorist Islamic uprising could expand and warns against travel to 16 of the West African nation’s 37 states where Americans have suffered violent crimes from kidnappings and rape to home invasions.

The advisory posted at the U.S. State Department website and dated Jan. 8 tells citizens to expect little help from Nigerian law enforcers.

The advisory also warns of increasing piracy in Nigerian waters in the Gulf of Guinea, where armed gangs operate despite the Nigerian Navy.
