The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Lucky Irabor, has condemned the attack on the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) in Kaduna State.
While addressing reporters on Tuesday in Yola, Irabor described the attack carried out by bandits as “madness” that must be stopped.
He said: “The incident in Kaduna, of course, has been undertaken by bandits, but it is more of an armed robber coming to your house.
“The infiltration did not come by virtue of the normal banditry action, but these are things we are already looking at and in due course, you will get the details.
“Any form of insecurity is a cause for worry for anyone and that is why for us, we are more determined that this madness must be brought to an end very speedily.”
Speaking about the insurgency in the North East, Irabor who was in Adamawa State to meet with retired senior military officers in the north-east region, thanked the residents for genuinely supporting the ongoing intensive clearance operations by troops towards the restoration of permanent peace in the zone.
He said the solutions to the security challenges in the North East lie in the region, with hopes that the situation will get better in the days ahead.
