We’ll arrest NDA attackers no matter how long, COAS vows
THE perpetrators of the attack on the Nigeria Defence Academy would be brought to book, notwithstanding how long it takes to get them, the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya, has vowed.
This was contained in a statement yesterday by the Academy’s Public Relations Officer, Bashir Jajira.
The COAS was said to have visited the Nigerian Defence Academy on Tuesday.
The statement was titled, ‘COAS assures NDA of support to tackle insecurity’.
It partly read, “The COAS appealed to the Academy staff to remain loyal to the country and not allow the unfortunate incident to deter them from their ultimate objective of grooming officer cadets for the Armed Forces of Nigeria.
“He further enjoined all officers, soldiers and civilian staff in the Academy to remain vigilant because the fight against insecurity must be a collective effort.
“The COAS vowed that no matter how long it takes, the perpetrators of this heinous act would be brought to justice. He urged the Commandant not to be deterred, but remain focus on the good job he is doing in the Academy.
“He assured the Academy that the Nigerian Army would also provide it with additional operational enablers to further enhance the security of the Academy.”
The NDA commandant, Maj Gen I. M Yusuf was quoted to have briefed the COAS on the new security measures being taken in collaboration with 1 Division Nigerian Army, the Nigerian Air Force and other security agencies in Kaduna State to prevent any future security breach in the Academy.
