DAMATURA, Nigeria — Suspected members of a Muslim sect accused of orchestrating targeted killings across northern Nigeria have attacked another police station.

Officials say officers repelled the attack Saturday night targeting the police station, located in rural Yobe state, killing one of the suspected members of the Boko Haram sect.

Police chief Mamman Sule told The Associated Press on Sunday that the men had wanted to set the station ablaze, but were foiled in their attack. Suspected sect members recently firebombed another police station in neighboring Borno state.
