The Chief of Defence Staff, Gen Lucky Irabor, has reacted angrily to Tuesday’s invasion of the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) in Kaduna State by bandits.
Irabor condemned the incident which led to the death of two officers while another was abducted.
While addressing newsmen about the attack in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, Irabor assured that security agencies were on top of the situation.
He explained that the incident did not happen like a normal banditry action adding that they were more determined that the madness must be brought to an end.
The CDS said, “The incident in Kaduna has been undertaken by bandits, but it’s more of an armed robber coming to your house. The infiltration didn’t come by virtue of the normal banditry action. But these are things we’re already looking at, and in due course, you’ll get the details.
“Suffice to say, any form of insecurity is a cause of worry for anyone. That’s why for us, we’re more determined that this madness must be brought to an end very swiftly.”
Meanwhile, the kidnapped officer, Major Stephen Datong, was reportedly killed hours after a N200m ransom was demanded.
