Gunmen kill 3 Muslim worshippers in Kano

Boko Haram Gunmen on a motorcycle killed three people on Monday when they opened fire on a group of Muslim worshippers in Kano.

Three gunmen fired into a group of people preparing for evening prayers in a business district of the city, police spokesman Magaji Majia told AFP.

“The three gunmen came on a motorcycle around 6:00 pm and opened fire on a group of people getting ready for the evening prayers at a popular tea-selling spot opposite the zoo,” Majia said.

One person was also injured in the attack.

Violence related to Boko Haram’s insurgency has left some 3,000 people dead since 2009, including killings by the security forces.
