At least two policemen were killed in Bama Town, 75km from Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, when gunmen attempted to kill the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of a police station on Thursday afternoon.

Police sources and residents of Bama said several houses around the Police Divisional headquarters were torched in ensuing shootout between the gunmen and security forces.
