Two Nigerian journalists
have been arrested over the killing of nine female polio vaccinators in Kano state on Friday, police have said.
Kano police chief Ibrahim Idris told the BBC the journalists would be charged with culpable homicide.
They had incited the public to oppose vaccinations through their Wazobia FM radio station, he alleged.
In the first attack in Kano, vaccinators were shot dead by gunmen who drove up on a motor tricycle.
Thirty minutes later gunmen targeted a clinic outside Kano city as the vaccinators prepared to start work.
Wazobia's station chief Sanusi Bello Kankarofi told AFP news
agency that a presenter and a reporter were being held by Kano police,
along with a man who featured on their programme.
A third journalist had been released after being questioned, Mr Kankarofi said.
