“They couldn’t kill even one of them,” an NDA told FIJ. “They searched everywhere in the bush but couldn’t find them. They had fled away with their motorbikes.”

“They have called to ask for N200million to free the Major,” the source also said. “The attack was ridiculous. They came, teased us and left. Even the helicopter hovering in the bush could not track them.”

Meanwhile, the NDA has confirmed the attack, explaining that the bandits gained access into the well-fortified institution because the security architecture of the facility was compromised.
