A former Governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, has condemned the invasion of the military facility in Kaduna State by bandits terrorists.

Reacting to Tuesday’s brazen attack on the Nigeria Defence Academy in Afaka by bandit terrorists, Oyinlola said the incident is an embarrassment and ridicule to the Nigerian military.

The former military governor of Lagos State added that if the security of a fortified military establishment could be breached, an average Nigerian is not safe.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stalwart expressed sadness over the attack having served in the military for 30 years.

He said; “That it happened at NDA is a total disgrace. Whatever may have happened, somebody has refused to do his work. It is a total slap on the face of the military.

“I have not gotten the detail of how it happened. If that kind of thing could happen in such a place, then God helps all of us. I am sad that such happened having served in the military for 30 years.

Oyinlola stated this in an interview on Rave Fm, a private radio station based in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.
