Gunmen attacked two separate police stations across northern Nigeria, killing four police officers and two civilians in one attack while bombing a station in another, authorities said Tuesday.

Residents in Bauchi and Sokoto states said they feared the two attacks late Monday night were the work of a feared Muslim sect that is seemingly able to attack security officials at will.

However, police downplayed the worry — even though the assaults showed how Nigeria’s federal police force struggles to protect even itself.
