Just in: Bandits attack Nigerian Army cadet training school in Kaduna

Unknown gunmen attacked the officer cadets of the Nigerian Army School of Infantry (NASI) in Jaji, Kaduna State on Tuesday, according to a report by Peoples Gazette.

The report revealed that an unconfirmed number of assailants, suspected to be cattle rustlers, ran into students of Tactics Wing, NASI, during ‘Exercise Wazobia’ — a rigorous military drill at Labar camp and opened fire.

“The armed escort responded with high volume of fire and the bandits escaped in disarray,” a source told the Gazette Wednesday.

It was further gathered that a soldier, who sustained gunshot wounds in the attack, was promptly evacuated to a medical facility in the state for treatment.

The camp is where officer cadets undergo military courses ranging from young officers course (YOC), company commanders course (CCC) and commanding officers course (COC).

The army is yet to speak about the incident.
