The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) on Wednesday denied claims that military personnel monitoring the closed-circuit television at the Nigerian Defence Academy were fast asleep when the attack on the facility happened.
It also said a board of enquiry has been constituted to ascertain the incidents that led to the security breach.
The DHQ disclosed this in a statement by the Director of Defence Information, Major General Benjamin Sawyerr.
Bandits on Tuesday attacked the NDA in Kaduna, killed two personnel and kidnapped one.
An online news platform had however reported that officers in the CCTV monitoring room at NDA slept off while the marauders operated.
Dispelling the claim in a statement, the DHQ said the military personnel are trained and dedicated to their duties.
