The Managing Director of Anambra State Signage and  Advertising Agency, (ANSAA), Jude Emecheta has accused members of the security outfit of being behind the ongoing kidnappings going in northern part of Nigeria.
He said that it is retired soldiers who are angry over their unexpected retirement that took to the bush in retaliation.
On the recent attack at the Nigeria Defence Academy, NDA, he said that it takes people that are conversant of the place to be able to penetrate, attack  and get away with it.
Emecheta who is also a scribe of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA said, “For you to go to a school and abduct more than 73 school children, the principal and the vice, you cant be an ordinary person.
“Retired army officers and other trained personnel are behind all the kidnappings. If you see the way they carry arms, you will know that mere civilians can not do that. Personally, i cant handle gun the way they do.
“The people who are training these bandits, terrorists in our country are army officers. You cant tell me that someone went into the bush, then wake up in the morning, attack a school and abduct some students. There must be something behind the impetus, that you have aa a trained officer for you to do it.
“Security issues we have are caused by retired armies in the notth. All government need to do is align with the bandits and cattle rustlers to calm the situation. People are being killed in droves, infact people are living like ghosts waiting for when it is their turn to go. The situation is dire.”
“I commend the Chief of Staff for what he is doing right now, talking to the service men, to see how to nip this issue in the bud. He knows what he is doing. For security to be checked, they have to go back to their records.
“If you don’t get this retired officers back, then something should be done to pacify them.”
According to him, the issue of kidnap is less in the east because most of such low rank retired army officers aremostly from northern Nigeria.
