The Tuesday’s attack by Bandits on the Nigerian Defence Academy has been highly condermed by the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) and the handling of security by the Muhammadu Buhari-led government.
In a statement issued by the spokesman for ACF, Emmanuel Yawe, described it as a shame that “ordinary street bandits” could have carried out such an attack on the military school.
“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.
“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 unknown destination.
“The NDA is a proud reminder of the achievements of our fathers. 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 Air Force 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 in reverse gear?”
