amount of damage or casualties was not immediately clear, and police had not immediately commented.

"At the moment, there is a heavy shootout between the immigration personnel and the police with the attackers, and bombs explode in between," a resident near the immigration office said by phone.

"Now my dress is drenched in blood because I had to help carry someone shot in the shootout."

He said it appeared a passport office of the immigration service was targeted in the Marhaba area.

Another resident said it appeared a police station was targeted in the Unguwa Uku neighbourhood.

"Several explosions have occurred at the Yar Akwa police station," he said. "Everybody is running for his life. It's chaotic."

Scores of bomb blasts in Nigeria's north have been blamed on Islamist group Boko Haram.

President Goodluck Jonathan declared a state of emergency in parts of four states on December 31 hard hit by attacks blamed on Boko Haram.

Kano is not included in the state of emergency and has not been previously hit by any of recent major attacks. Most of the attacks have occurred in the country's northeast.

Nigeria, Africa's most populous nation and largest oil producer, is roughly divided between a mainly Muslim north and predominately Christian south.
