At least 15 people have been killed when police fought a battle with suspected Boko Haram suicide bombers in Nigeria’s second largest city, Kano.

Kano State police commissioner Adelere Shinaba said the gunmen, whom he described as “insurgents”, ran into the Federal College of Education after exchanging fire with police outside the grounds.

“They were obviously suicide bombers. One of our officers shot at one of the gunmen and the explosives on him went off, killing him on the spot,” he told AFP adding another gunman was also killed.

The blast shattered glass and brought down the ceiling in the room.

Authorities said more than 30 people were wounded in the incident and taken to a local hospital.
