Gunmen stormed a higher education college in northern Nigeria on Wednesday, firing on fleeing students and setting off an explosion in an attack that killed at least 15 people and wounded 35, police said.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack in the region’s main city of Kano, but the Islamist militant group Boko Haram, which has repeatedly targeted civilians in the north, is likely to be a prime suspect.
A police spokesman added that officers arrived on the scene and killed two of the attackers.
Workers collected the personal effects of students who fled from the attackers who struck earlier today
He said: ‘We heard several shots from the gate area and after a few minutes we heard an explosion at the theatre,’ said Sanusi Umar, who lectures in English at the federal government college and watched the attack from a neighbouring building.
‘The attackers were wearing suits and were running and shooting everywhere.’
