Nigeria’s former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has accused the military of deliberately refusing to repel the attack on the medium correctional facility in Kuje by members of the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP).
It was widely reported that soldiers guarding the facility were redeployed and replaced 24 hours before the attack happened.
VANTAGE NEWS had reported that no strong security outfit was on the ground or arrived to repel the attack that lasted for almost 3 hours.
In a series of posts on his verified Twitter handle, Fani-Kayode accused the military of failing in their responsibility to protect Nigerians and their infrastructures.
The APC chieftain pointed out that the military failed to prevent the attack on the Abuja-bound train in Kaduna despite a warning from the Department of State Services (DSS).
Fani-Kayode wrote, “A situation whereby the DSS not only WARNED the military about the Kaduna train attack & kidnapping but ALSO the Kuje prison break well BEFORE they both took place & the military REFUSED to act to prevent or resist either of them gives cause for alarm & raises many questions.
“Whilst everyone is preparing for 2023, there is clearly something evil and sinister going on.
“Is someone trying to create chaos in order to scuttle our democracy?
“If so, who are these people, what foreign countries are involved, and who is funding Boko Haram and ISWAP?
“The DSS, NIA & NPF are doing their job & they have lost so many men in the course of this conflict.
“Our young soldiers & junior officers who are fighting in the killing fields are doing their best too, but why are our SENIOR OFFICERS & MILITARY COMMANDERS so INCOMPETENT & WEAK?
“Is there not more to this than meets the eye?“
