A source said “it was in the middle of the night, and the personnel that were meant to be monitoring the CCTV had slept off.”
“They could have put everyone on alert, and avert the attack.”
It was learnt the academy authorities would court martial some soldiers for failing to secure the area.
Bashir Muhd Jajira, spokesperson of the academy, in a statement also explained how the security architecture was compromised at the institution.
“The security architecture of the Nigerian Defence Academy was compromised early this morning by unknown gunmen who gained access into the residential area within the Academy in Afaka. During the unfortunate incident, we lost two personnel and one was abducted,” he said.
