If yo are a female traveler, you should not worry about going to Namibia on your own. It’s a very safe country for solo female travelers. The people are really friendly and welcoming so you won’t have any security issues.
The only thing that might happen is that if you’re alone, you will most likely meet more people than normal because the locals will want to talk to you, or the hostel owners (if you’re staying in one) will ask questions so they can have something to post about on social media for marketing purposes.
Ultimately though, this is not something that should deter Nigerian women from visiting Namibia at all; it’s just an interesting factoid. And it could also be good practice for meeting new people if this isn’t something that comes naturally to you.
