India on 19 January 2013 issued an advisory to its citizens in Nigeria, asking them to limit their exposure to areas where radical Islamic sect Boko Haram is active. The Indian High Commission in an advisory placed on its website also warned Indian crew-members to be careful while plying their ships in Gulf of Guinea, dominated by pirates.

The advisory also mentioned some Indians who were victims of recent violence caused by Islamic fundamentalists Boko Haram in the northern city of Kano. It was the first time in recent years that Indian nationals and their establishments were targeted for attack.

Northern part of oil rich Nigeria came under terrorist attacks by Boko Haram which killed many people through shootings and suicide attacks.
