Gunmen kill three police officers in Kano attacks
At least three police officers were killed on Monday when unidentified gunmen invaded the residence of the Kano state police commissioner at the Chiranchi Dorayi quarters along Panshekara road, reports said.
Others were injured in the attack which took place on Monday afternoon. The gunmen had stormed the premises of the senior police official and opened fire outside the residence, killing two officers standing guard at the gates.
Eye witnesses report seeing three gunmen, two of them on a motorcycle had come in from the alley, while the third had approached from the main road on foot.
Residents fled to safety to avoid getting caught in the cross fire, the eye witness reported, adding that two other policemen were felled in the shooting.
All three gunmen eventually ran out of ammunition, taking off on foot through back alleys as some passers-by attempted to capture them.
Kano state police spokesman ASP Magaji Musa Majia confirmed the incident, adding that the area has been cordoned off by police. He denied reports that four police officers were killed, claiming instead that two policemen were killed while the other two officers sustained serious injuries.
Nigeria’s radical Islamic sect Boko Haram sect has claimed attacks on security personnel, including the multiple bomb attacks in Kano targeting security posts that left at least 185 people dead earlier this year.
