120 inmates freed in Nigeria attacks, 25 die
Sunday - 3/24/2013, 11:40am EDT
YOLA, Nigeria (AP) -- Officials say gunmen attacked a remote town in Nigeria's northeast, killing 25 and freeing 120 inmates.
Adamawa State's head of prisons, Andrew Barka, said Sunday 120 inmates were freed in the Friday night raid in Ganye near the border with Cameroon.
Police spokesman Mohammed Ibrahim said 25 people were killed after the assailants also attacked a bank and a drinking spot.
The attacks come a week after men claiming to be members of the radical Boko Haram Islamist network said in an unverified video that they would not free a kidnapped French family unless Nigeria and Cameroon freed all the group's members from their jails.
