The Executive Secretary of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), Tony Ojukwu has condemned in strong terms the attack on the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA), describing it as an affront on Nigeria’s security which is highly unacceptable.
Ojukwu while expressing shock and disappointment as he reacted to the news of the attack in his office, Tuesday, in Abuja said the NDA is the pride of the country where people from other parts of the world come to train.
“The invasion of the institution with high international repute where very intelligent military officers are produced is most unfortunate, unexpected and condemnable” he lamented.
Speaking further, Ojukwu said the attack on the military institution is bad in itself, and worst of it all is the killing and abduction involved “and this is the worst form of human rights violations of our time. Military Officers like other security personnel are entitled to carry out their duties in relative safety and security.
