President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned bandits’ attack on the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) in Kaduna State after assailants broke into the NDA premises in the early hours of Monday, killing two army officers and abducting two Majors.
Reacting, Buhari in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina said the attack won’t dampen the morale of troops.
”The attack launched on the facility of the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) on Tuesday, rather than throw a dampener into the morale of our Armed Forces as it is intended to, will buoy their determination to make a decisive end of criminality in the country,” he said.
Buhari said that the heinous action would accelerate the total uprooting of evil in the polity, which members of the Armed Forces are solidly resolved to accomplish in the shortest possible time.
He also commiserated with the families of those who lost their loved ones, and prayed to God to comfort them.
Buhari however vowed that the deceased would not die in vain, as the degenerate act would have consequences that will eventually clean the country of vermin, and emancipate the polity from deliberate, targeted and contrived atrocious acts then thanked all Nigerians who value and appreciate the efforts of the military, and urged those playing hateful politics with the dastardly act to desist.
According to him, ”rather than recriminations, this is the time for all patriots and people of goodwill to support and encourage those who are in the vanguard of the battle against wickedness in the land.”
