Nigerian Suspected Militants Kill Police Inspector in North

Suspected Islamist militants in Nigeria shot dead a police inspector at a market in the northeastern state of Borno, a police official said.

Ali Adamu was killed while shopping in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital, yesterday afternoon, police spokesman Samuel Tizhe said in a phone interview.

Maiduguri has been the center of a violent campaign by the Islamist Boko Haram sect to impose Shariah law in Africa’s top oil producer. The government blames Boko Haram, which draws inspiration from Afghanistan’s Taliban movement, for a surge of violence in the mainly Muslim north and in Abuja, the capital, since 2009.

Police in Borno offered a 1 million naira ($6,341) reward for any information leading to the recovery of weapons and ammunition and the subsequent arrest of any of the militants, Bala Hassan, the state’s chief of police, said yesterday in a phone interview.
