MAIDUGURI, Nigeria — A police official says suspected members of a radical Muslim sect shot and killed a policeman in a northeast Nigeria city beset by assassinations carried out by the group.

Police commissioner Simeone Midenda says two gunmen suspected to be members of the Boko Haram sect shot and killed the policeman Friday night. Midenda said Saturday that they killed him in front of his wife at his Maiduguri home. He says no arrests were made.

The Boko Haram sect has carried out a string of assassinations and bombings in northern Nigeria in its campaign to implement strict Shariah law in Africa’s most populous nation.

The sect claimed responsibility for the Aug. 26 suicide car bombing at the United Nations headquarters in the country that killed 23 people and wounded 116 others.
