This is a very sad story that penetrated our ears on Monday news. It first sounded like a scene from an action movie. It sounded like operation Babarosa. When Hitler ordered the start of Operation Barbarossa, millions of German soldiers flooded into Russia, believing that their rapid blitzkrieg tactics would result in the an easy victory similar to the ones enjoyed by the Wehrmacht over Poland and France.
Operation Entebbe or Operation Thunderbolt was a successful counter-terrorist hostage-rescue mission carried out by commandos of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) at Entebbe Airport in Uganda on 4 July 1976.
So called bandits attacking an Army formation in Kaduna, The Nigeria defence academy pamanent site in Afaka, on old Kaduna- Birnin gwari- Lagos road.
It is so pathetic that the Amy is losing out again. This is happening fter several attacks on army barracks in Borno, like Giwa barrack, Bama and Monguno Barracks, the army had neither learned it’s lessons or taken serieus steps to protect it’s self as well as operational bases. Many other towns like Bama, Baga, Gwoza and Monguno were at the mercy of Boko Haram for so long.
Students have been abducted from Chibok, Dapchi, and Konduga, and ofcorse the latest are the various school abductions in Katsina, Zamfara and Kaduna states. Paharps the latest abduction of the helpless students most have emboldened the attackers. no matter who they are.
When the police headquarters and the United nations office ware attacked in Abuja, the questions on the lips of many Nigerians was, if the police can not protect it’s headquarters and that of the United nations, how can it protect the citizens of this great country? I am sure nigerians are asking the same question now.
Afaka barrack with all the watch towers has now fallen to the so called bandits. embarrassing for the Nigerian army.
where is ever safe again if the army can not protect the biggest enclave where it’s young officers are been trained? This are people’s kids from all over Nigeria. What happened to the budget for the school?
Talking of security in the twenty first century, is not a matter of rethorics. It is a science and technology base approach. From infrared to thermal cameras at Night, as well as high calibre drones. In other climes, even robots patrol parameters.
unfortunately in Nigeria, the bosses at the top would allow problems to happen and begin the lament. At the end of all the shouts, nobody would be sacked or punished.
The second question in the lips of so many is that, are these attackers really bandits? The attack on military and police formation is a signature of Boko Haram. Have the bandits become so sophisticated now?
Boko Haram is so sophisticated that they have even brought down military aircrafts. Bandits have also brought down an air force aircraft recently. But are bandits sophisticated enough to attack a military formation like Boko Haram have been doing? This is a one million Dollar question!
