It is pathetic to know that the northern part of Nigeria has been plagued with so much negativity that most Nigerians fail to remember that this part of the country was once visited by tourists all over the world.
There are so many beautiful and ancient towns in the northern part of Nigeria that are simply breathtaking. It is rather unfortunate that the present scourge of violence brought by the deadly terrorist sect in the country has blinded so many people and has prevented them from seeing some parts of Nigeria that are worth visiting.
Instead, we see pictures of burned houses and remains of human parts charred and left on some roads in Northern Nigeria. This has given most people the impression that the Northern Nigeria is a place not to be visited as one could be killed by the wildly feared Boko Haram terrorists that seem to have laid siege on that part of the country.
Here are some beautiful pictures of Northern Nigeria you need to see to believe:
