KANO, Nigeria, Jan 22 (Reuters) - Suspected Islamist gunmen riding on motorbikes shot dead five people in Nigeria's main northern city of Kano on Tuesday, witnesses and a hospital source who received the bodies said.

Two others were wounded. The attack came barely a day after suspected Islamists killed 18 people in a market town in northeast Nigeria. (Reporting by Chukwuemeka Madu; Writing by Tim Cocks; Editing by Louise Ireland)
