25 Killed in Coordinated Attacks in Nigeria

Nigerian police said 25 people have been killed in a series of attacks by gunmen in eastern Nigeria.

The gunmen carried out four simultaneous assaults on Ganye in Adamawa state Friday, opening fire on a bar, a bank, a police station and a prison.

Police on Saturday would not say how many prisoners were freed in the attack or how much money was stolen from the bank.

Although police did not say who was behind the attacks, they resembled previous attacks in Nigeria that were claimed by the Islamist Boko Haram militants.
