The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), reacting to the attack on the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) located at Afaka in Kaduna State, said the founding fathers of Nigeria did not establish the NDA for bandits to take over.
It said the NDA is not for the North, but the pride of Nigeria. In a statement issued by the forum and signed by the national publicity secretary, Emmanuel Yawe, it described as sad that ordinary street bandits would invade an institution where other African countries send their officers for training.
“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,” the statement read.
It commiserated with the families of those who lost their lives during the attack and prayed that the abducted officer will be rescued and the criminals brought to book.
