You will need to be vaccinated against cholera and yellow fever and take anti-malaria pills.

You would have no problem at all surviving, ignore the fraidy-cats. But there are troubles spots in Nigeria. There will usually be patrols in place to keep you from even going there,you can't just go wandering into revolutionary or terrorist zones. If local people tall you someplace is not safe, they mean it, and they mean well by warning you. When moving about, always ask someone local if it is safe to go there. In general, strangers are on your side, and will protect you. Don't go wandering about after dark, especially in unfamiliar places alone or with someone you don't know very well.

But you will face a very serious problem trying to arrange even simple tourist visas, even for a one months visit. Forget about remaining for a longer visit, unless you can come up with a legitimate sponsor at home or in Africa that will support your request for a longer-term visa.
