Why NDA can’t expel cadets for torturing civilian – Commandant


Commandant of the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA), Major General Mohammed Ibrahim, yesterday said the academy could not expel the cadets shown in a video torturing a civilian because the time to prosecute them had lapsed since it exceeded six months to trail the offences.

Speaking at the matriculation ceremony of 466 officer cadets of the 67th Regular Course, he noted that the incident happened in 2014 when the cadets were first termers and had just been in the academy for three months.

While noting that appropriate action had already been taken on the cadets, he urged the newly matriculated ones to consider themselves lucky to have successfully passed the one month intensive military training.

He assured that the institution would give their welfare priority while the enabling academic environment would be provided for their study.
