Former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has condemned the latest attack by bandits on a quarter of the Federal Aiport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) in Kaduna.
In a post on his Twitter handle on Sunday, Fani-Kayode described the attack as a new level of insurgency.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain said the attack was unparalleled and unprecedented.
He wrote: “The attack on Kaduna Airport and abduction of airport officials and their family members by terrorists and bandits represents a new level of insurgency that is unparalleled and unprecedented.
“My heart goes out to those that have been abducted. They are in my prayers.”
Recall that bandits on Saturday attacked the FAAN quarters in Kaduna, abducting about nine persons.
Naija News reports that the bandits accessed the quarters through the airport runway at about 12.30 am on Saturday, abducting nine people including a whole family of six, a housewife, and her two children.
It was gathered that the incident lasted for hours as military personnel engaged the bandits, but sadly the attackers had their way.
The bandits later went away on motorcycles with their abductees.
This is the first time the FAAN quarters is experiencing such an attack despite growing security concerns in the state.
