The Coalition of Northern Elders for Peace and Development has advocated for the review of the nation’s security design and sacking of the National Security Adviser Babagana Monguno over the attack on the Nigerian Defence Academy, NDA.
It attributed the bandits’ attack, which left two military officers dead and one other kidnapped to failure of the country’s intelligence network.
The organization, in a statement following the attack, also sought an in-depth review of the entire security architecture as according to them, the entire security chiefs must bear the blame.
The group in the statement by its National Coordinator, Zana Goni, blamed President Muhammadu Buhari for leaving Monguno behind at the time he replaced service chiefs.
The statement maintained that their position was based on patriotism to the country, the elders also insisted that it is time for Buhari to do away with the National Security Adviser following the worsening insecurity in the country.
It would be recalled that the Nigerian Army had confirmed the killing of two of its officers and kidnapping of a senior officer at the Nigerian Defence Academy, NDA in Afaka, Kaduna State.
