Suspected Boko Haram militants attack police building in Nigeria, Two dead

 

Suspected militants of radical Islamic group Boko Haram attacked a high security police base in Abuja, leaving two policemen dead, and enabling the escape of 30 detainees, most of whom were recaptured.

 

The attack came a day after two suicide bombers blew themselves up at a church inside a high security military barrack in northern Nigeria. In Abuja today, the police Special Anti-Robbery Squad building came under attack when a large number of gunmen launched an armed attack over it.

 A police statement said the attack was repelled but that 30 detainees escaped, 25 of whom were recaptured. Security at the place is usually very tight but the
attackers were able to breach it and gain access to the building through a hill overlooking the building and began shooting sporadically.

 No group claimed responsibility for the attack, but suspicion immediately fell on radical militant group Boko Haram. Yesterday, a high military formation in Jaji was attacked by suspected Boko Haram members leaving 11 persons dead and 30 others injured.

 The group has the avowed aim of establishing Muslim law in northern Nigeria where Muslims are in majority.
