An Air Force personnel has been arrested in connection with the attack on the Nigerian Defence Academy, Kaduna State.
Bandits had in the early hours of August 24 attacked the NDA’s permanent site, killing two officers and abducting another.
The bandits who came in a vehicle were said to have passed through the security gate into the academy, disguised in military uniforms, after which they proceeded to the officers’ quarters.
