The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has described the attack on the Nigerian Defence Academy, Kaduna by bandits as a “terrible development.”
National Publicity Secretary of the group, Emmanuel Yawe, told The Punch that the attack underscores the palous state of security in Nigeria
He said, “It’s a terrible development. It underscores our parlous state of security in Nigeria and the uncountable calls by the ACF and others for something to be done by the government to improve our collective security.
“The latest security breach is another embarrassment to the ACF. The NDA is a proud monument of the efforts of the first generation of northerners, who fought hard to bring development to the North; the likes of Muhammadu Ribadu, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa and Sir Ahmadu Bello, who brought the institution to Kaduna. They did not bring it here for our generation to hand it over to bandits or whatever we call them.”
