A Lieutenant Commander simply identified as Wulah and Flying Lieutenant CM Okoronwo have been identified as the victims who were shot dead during the invasion of Afaka barracks of the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) on Tuesday morning.
It was reported that bandits broke into the prestigious military institution around 1am.
A source within the barracks said the attackers struck when many were asleep, adding that security was beefed up to prevent the armed men from escaping with their victims.
It was gathered that one Major Datong was kidnapped in the incident while an officer simply identified as 2nd Lieutenant Onah sustained gunshot injury and is currently receiving treatment at NDA hospital.
It happened less than a week after President Muhammadu Buhari charged security chiefs to double up their efforts because he did not want to leave office as a failure.
