Nigerian police on Wednesday said 25 people were killed following attacks in four communities in the northwestern state of Kaduna.

The attacks by unknown gunmen occurred on Monday in four communities of the Kauru district of Kaduna which shares a border with the central state of Plateau, Mohammed Jalige, a spokesman for the police in Kaduna, told Xinhua by telephone.

"The death toll might increase as we are still expecting an update from our personnel who are trying to restore orderliness in the area," Jalige said.
