Presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu  has said the recent attack on the Nigerian Defence Academy, NDA might be a political ploy to embarrass President Muhammadu Buhari.

On Tuesday, gunmen launched an attack on the NDA, resulting in the death of two officers.

Reacting to the incident on Wednesday, during an interview on Channels Television, the presidential spokesperson said the attack might be politically motivated.


He said “The president has denounced it. He is not happy about it. It is now left for the military authorities to thoroughly investigate this and bring out what happened,” he said.

“So many scenarios are being painted though. Could this be truly a criminal attempt to violate the sanctity of that military institution? Was this an opportunistic crime? Is it political? Does somebody want to embarrass the government by doing this?


“We are coming from major successes. Look at how Boko Haram is unravelling in the north; they surrendered. All of the victories that have been recorded even in the north-west — these bandits are being taken out in large numbers.

“So, in a climate — political climate — in which people seek to make political capital out of this unfortunate incident, you don’t rule in anything, you don’t rule out anything.

“We hope investigations will fully reveal what happened and why it happened.”
