At least 20 students have been killed in an attack outside a college campus in Nigeria's troubled north-east.

Some of the victims were shot and others had been stabbed in an attack near the Federal Polytechnic Mubi in the town of Mubi.

Student Danjuma Aiso said the attackers targeted students who, like him, live in rented accommodations outside the campus.

The attack follows the killing on Saturday of three students outside a university campus in the nearby city of Maiduguri.
