KANO, Nigeria (AFP) — Suspected members of a radical Islamist sect which bombed Nigerian police headquarters on Sunday opened fire on a crowd of card players killing two in a northern city, a senior military officer said.
Two motorcycle-riding gunmen suspected of being members of Boko Haram pumped shots into a crowd of people playing cards outside a house in the city of Maiduguri and disappeared into alleyways, said the officer who did not want to be named.
“The group of men were playing cards under a tree outside a house when two men on a motorcycle believed to be Boko Haram members opened fire on them, killing two people and seriously injuring five others,” the officer told AFP.
“The attack is a typical Boko Haram (shoot-and-run) style,” the military officer said.
Boko Haram claimed Nigeria’s first suicide bombing last week which killed several people at the police headquarters in the capital Abuja.
