Personnel monitoring closed-circuit television (CCTV) at the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) were reportedly asleep when bandits attacked the premises on Tuesday.

TheCable had reported that two officers were killed in the attack, and one other officer abducted.

Sources who spoke with TheCable had said the bandits sneaked in through a part of the facility that had no fence.

Another source who spoke with TheCable said “it was in the middle of the night, and the personnel that were meant to be monitoring the CCTV had slept off.”

“They could have put everyone on alert, and avert the attack.”
