The Minority Caucus of the House of Representatives is appealing for an investigation over the attack on the Kaduna International Airport by terrorists on Saturday.
The minority Leader of the caucus, Ndudi Elumelu, has said that the development is another frightening commentary on the apparent collapse of our national security and intelligence gathering coordination.
“The Minority Caucus is deeply concerned and alarmed by the manifest lack of capacity by the APC administration to secure our nation to the extent that a strategic international airport in our country could be invaded and taken over by terrorists.
“Airports, especially international airports across the world, are usually highly secured areas. Therefore, the circumstances that allowed for the invasion of the Kaduna International Airport speak volumes about the failure of the APC administration”, the statement read in part.
Hon. Elumelu stress the need for a strong security, regarding the attack on the airport. adding that our roads, railways, and communities are being overrun by bandits, kidnappers, and invaders which has heightened fear across the country as well as sent a very worrisome signal to the international community regarding the safety of our airports and the worsening insecurity in Nigeria.
The minority caucus called for an urgent comprehensive investigation into the remote and immediate circumstances leading to the apparent compromising of security at the airport to pave way for the eventual invasion by the terrorists.
