KANO, Nigeria (AP) -- Police say suspected members of a radical sect have attacked two more police stations, leaving two people dead in a north Nigerian city where 185 people were killed just over a week ago.
Kano State police chief Ibrahim Idris said two civilians died in crossfire between suspected Boko Haram gunmen and police officers Sunday evening in Kano.
Idris said parts of the police station collapsed under the impact of bombs hurled by the attackers.
He said a new attack Monday morning targeted another police station where a policeman was killed last week.
He said the latest strikes occurred just outside curfew hours imposed after coordinated Jan. 20 attacks claimed by Boko Haram left at least 185 dead.
Those were the group's bloodiest attacks against Nigeria's weak central government.
