The Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) has refuted the claim that Sgt Torsabo Solomon arrested for alleged involvement in the attack on the institution was in their custody.
Spokesman of the Academy, Major Bashir Jajira in a statement said the NDA has no connection with the suspect.
Jajira urged the public to disregard a report that the sergeant was brought to the NDA after his arrest, urging them to contact relevant investigative security agencies for clarification.
“The attention of the Nigerian Defence Academy has been drawn to a viral publication on social media regarding the arrest of one Sgt Torsabo Solomon for his involvement in the security breach in Nigerian Defence Academy and was conveyed to the Academy for investigation.
“This is to inform the general public that the above-named person is not in the Nigerian Defence Academy’s custody as alleged and has no connection with the Academy.
“The Nigerian Defence Academy is a military training institution and not an investigative security agency.
‘The general public is hereby advised to disregard this misinformation and refer to relevant Investigative Security Agencies for clarification,” the statement said.
