NDA denies arrest of its attack mastermind

The Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) has debunked reports that the mastermind of the attack carried out in its facility, has being arrested.

 

Recall it was reported earlier that an Air Force personnel, Torsabo Solomon was arrested in connection with the recent attack at the academy.

 

Spokesperson of the academy, Bashir Jajira in a statement released on Monday night, November 8, said the sergeant is not in its custody and has no connection with the attack.

 

Jajira added that though the perpetrators of the dastardly act are yet to be apprehended, all hands are on deck to bring them to book.

 

The statement read; 

 

The attention of the Nigerian Defence Academy has been drawn to a viral publication on social media regarding the arrest of one Sgt Torsabo Solomon for his involvement in the security breach in Nigerian Defence Academy and was conveyed to the Academy for investigation.

This is to inform the general public that the above named person is not in the Nigerian Defence Academy’s custody as alleged and has no connection with the Academy. The Nigerian Defence Academy is a Military Training Institution and not an Investigative Security Agency. The general public is hereby advised to disregard this misinformation and refer to relevant Investigative Security Agencies for clarification.

The Nigerian Defence Academy wishes to reassure the general public that the perpetrators of the security breach on the Nigerian Defence Academy architecture will sooner rather than later be apprehended.
