Bloodthirsty bandits killed two military officers and kidnapped another when they attacked Nigeria’s foremost military university, the Nigerian Defence Academy, Kaduna on Tuesday.
The murdering bandits shot Lieutenant Commodore Awolor and Flight Lieutenant Commodore Okoronkwo while Major Colonel Datong is still missing.
This attack on NDA has ultimately proved that Nigeria is insecure if an academy dedicated for militia training can be attacked successfully and worst of all a ranking personnel in the academy was abducted.
According to source, the hoodlums, who were dressed in military camouflage, beat the guards and headed for the officers’ quarters of the institution.
Incidentally, the military institution is opposite the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization, Afaka where 39 students were abducted by bandits on March 11, 2021. The bandits demanded N500 million a few days after the abduction.
But they were finally released after spending 50 days in the bandits’ den following the intervention of former President Olusegun Obasanjo and controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi.
