The Nigerian military has launched an investigation into a brazen attack on a military training academic in Kaduna state that resulted in the death of two soldiers and the kidnap of an army major.
Unidentified gunmen in the state reportedly perpetrated Tuesday’s attack.
In recent time, Kaduna state, located north of the federal capital Abuja, has been the scene of mass abductions at schools and other acts of violence against communities, along with other states such as Niger, Zamfara and Katsina.
The Nigerian government has said it is winning the battle against the criminals it describes as bandits.
But attacks such as Tuesday’s on the symbol of the army no doubts create doubts over the claim of the army.
Adamu Mustapha is a resident of Kaduna state. He is speaking to WADR about the attack on the military academy.
