Armed bandits in the early hours of Tuesday attacked the Afaka barracks of the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA), Kaduna, killing a naval officer.
The bandits were also said to have also kidnapped two majors, Daily Trust reports.
The newspaper added that the bandits are still inside the academy.
A source within the barracks told Daily Trust that security has been beefed up within and around the barracks to stop the bandits from escaping with the officers.
“It was a terrible experience, the bandits took advantage of the time when most people had gone to bed to attack the barracks.”
“Right now, the whole barracks is under lock and key and security has been beefed up so that the bandits cannot leave the barracks because it is believed that they are still within,” the source added.
