Buhari finally breaks silence on bandits’ attack at NDA


President Muhammadu Buhari has spoken out against bandits’ attack at the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) in Kaduna State.

The assailants broke into the NDA facility in the early hours of Monday.

Two army officers were killed and two Majors abducted.

Reacting, Buhari in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina vowed that 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.

Commiserating with the families who lost their loved ones, and praying God to comfort them, Buhari 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.

He, therefore, 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.”

"It was incredible to see the reception from the Spurs fans on Sunday and to read some of the messages of support I've had in the last few weeks," Kane posted on social media on Wednesday,...
