Over 200 people killed in Boko Haram’s latest attack. This time Boko Haram bombed the northern city of Kano. Reports say the group used a combination of gun attacks and bombs to carry out the latest attack.
Boko Haram members disguised in police security uniforms infiltrated a police station, and also carried out a gun attack on the station – indiscriminately firing, killing many officers. This was a coordinated bomb and gun attack.
A witness said:
“…we saw people running and heard gunshots from the gate, I saw them shooting. You could not differentiate the Boko Haram members from our Police Mobile Force men because they wore the same uniform…They were more than 50. As I tried to run a bullet hit me on my left hand and another shot hit me on my chest I fell”
Another witness said he saw close to 50 attackers and that they “killed every person inside except women and children...all of them were dressed in either Mobile Police uniforms or Army camouflage. They also wore black cloth under their service caps.“
