This review work assesses the current state of Nigeria Tourism Industry with reference to COVID-19 and Insecurity. The research work weighs the two to know which one affected the industry more in Nigeria. The work considered the effects of COVID-19 as it affects tourism and also looked into the causes and effects of insecurity as it relates to tourism in Nigeria. The work relied on the Conflict Theory by Karl Max as the basis for its theoretical underpinning. The review work having considered the various cases of insecurity in Nigeria concluded that insecurity affects the development of tourism more than COVID-19. The study recommends that the government of the day should put all efforts in ensuring the insecurity become a thing if the past in Nigeria so as to achieve a sustainable tourism development.
