The assault on the NDA, which trains the country’s military officers and those from other African countries, was seen as too daring although attacks on bases by jihadists waging a 12-year insurrection in the northeast are common.

 

On September 17, Nigerian troops raided a camp where the kidnapped officer was being held in the Afaka area not far from the military academy, the army said in a statement.

 

The bandits engaged the troops in a gunfight and “in the process, the gallant troops were able to rescue the abducted officer,” it said.

 

“However, the officer sustained a minor injury but has been treated in a medical facility and handed over to NDA for further action,” it said.
