NDA attack: Arrested NAF Officer in connection with attack is not in our custody, says NDA

The Nigerian Defence Academy says  Sgt Torsabo Solomon  who was  arrested in Makurdi, Benue State  in connection with terrorists attack at the academy is not in their custody.

A statement on Monday signed by Major Bashir Muhammed Jajira clarified that inquiry about the where about of the arrested suspect should be directed at the investigating agencies.

He said that 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 on the security breach in Nigerian Defence Academy and was conveyed to the Academy for investigation.”

“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.”
