(AGI) Abuja – Three policemen were killed when their patrol was
attacked this morning by armed men in Bauchi State in
northeastern Nigeria. The government reports that on Wednesday
night, armed men attacked a police station in Borno State,
killing two policemen and a civilian. In another attack on the
same day, two Indian citizens were killed in an attack on a
factory in Maiduguri, capital of Borno State. A third Indian
was injured and is in a local hospital in serious conditions.
Local government officials have blamed yesterday’s incidents on
Boko Haram, an Islamic terror group based in Borno State. At
the beginning of July in Maiduguri, nine local employees of an
Italian, Angelo Landoni, were murdered. His company was
rebuilding the mosque in the city’s center. Maidaguri is the
seat of the ‘shehu’ of Borno, the second most important person
in Nigerian Islam after the sultan of Sokoto. (AGI) .
