At least two people have been killed and another abducted in an attack on Nigeria’s top military academy.

An army spokesman said unknown gunmen broke into the campus in the northern city of Kaduna in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The Nigerian Defence Academy trains elite officers from Nigeria and other African countries.

There have been dozens of attacks and mass abductions in Kaduna and other north-western states in recent months.

Many students have dropped out of education because schools and colleges are targeted so frequently.

The latest incident – inside a military facility – is embarrassing for the authorities and is another indication of how terrible the security situation is in Nigeria.
