Gun men kill four people at a relaxation joint in Kano

Gunmen armed with assault rifles, on Saturday May 26th opened fire on a group of card players at the Filin Kashu relaxation spot in Gaida, Kano, killing four people and injuring several others.

The gunmen came in two separate motorcycles around 6pm, shot at the crowded fun spot and shot in the air for about 20 minutes before speeding away. The shooting caused a stampede, which led to the injury of several more.

This is the second time this year a fun spot patronized by card players will be attacked. Some say because Poking, known as Karta in Hausa is listed as a game of chance by Quran and encourages Muslims to stay off it. No group has claimed responsibility for the shooting
