The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), has condemned the attack on the killing of two officers and the abduction of one other in an attack on the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) by bandits.
The hoodlums had invaded the military institution in the early hours of Tuesday, killing two officers while one officer was abducted.
The ACF in a statement on Tuesday by Emmanuel Yawe, its spokesman described the attack as embarrassing, saying
the factory where all Nigerian military officers are produced has been desecrated.
Yawe, said it is sad that ordinary street bandits will invade a military institution of such high national and international repute, outwit the security system in the academy, kill officers and take one away to an unkown destination!
“The ACF, first and foremost commemorates with the families of those who lost their lives during todays (Tuesday) attack on the Nigerian Defence Academy.
“These gallant men have payed the supreme price for Nigeria, their motherland.
We hope their sacrifices are not in vain.
“The Forum is praying that the abducted officer will be rescued and the criminals who abducted him brought to book”, Yawe said.
Yawe said the latest security breach is another embarrasment to the forum.
According to him, “The NDA is a proud momumemt of the efforts of the first generation of northerners who fought hard to bring development to the north; the likes of Muhammadu Ribadu, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa and Sir Ahmadu Bello who brought the Institution to Kaduna.
“They did not bring it here for our generation to hand it over to bandits or whatever we call them.
“This is an institution that is not only a pride of the north but a pride of Nigeria. Many African countries train their military officers here”.
The ACF lamented that, “It is really sad that ordinary street bandits will invade a military institution of such high national and international repute, outwit the security system and men there, kill officers and take one away to an unkown destination.”
Yawe stressed that, “the NDA is a proud reminder of the achievements of our fathers” and wondered the present generation of northerners will seat and watch as these legacies are destroyed.
“We of the ACF have said it again and again that there is everything seriously wrong with the management of our security.
“The other day a Nigerian Airforce fighter aircraft was shot down by the so called bandits.
“Today the factory where all Nigerian military officers are produced has been invaded and desecrated.
“What else do we need to show that our national security system is running on reverse gear? The forum asked.
