A female suicide bomber blew herself up outside a university in Kano, northern Nigeria’s largest city, after they prevented her from carrying out an attack, injuring five officers, police said.

“A female suicide bomber was isolated as she was walking towards the gate of the university,” said police spokesman Frank Mba, adding that she had hidden the bomb under her “long black hijab”.

“Police on duty isolated her” because she was behaving strangely, Mba said.

They were about to ask a woman colleague to frisk the woman when she detonated the bomb, killing herself and injuring the five police officers, he said.
