KANO, Nigeria —

A Nigerian police official says that three time bombs were found in different sections of a university in the city of Kano.

Police spokesman Magaji Musa Majiya said Tuesday that the university personnel alerted the police after finding the bombs in the science and law buildings and at the sports complex of Bayero University. Majiya said police were on their way to the sites to diffuse the bombs.

Kano is Nigeria's largest city in its predominantly Muslim north. It saw at least 185 people killed in an attack by the Islamist sect Boko Haram in January.
