Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai has hailed security forces for repelling a bandit attack on Kaduna International Airport.

Security forces have reported that an attack by armed bandits was repelled in the vicinity of the Kaduna International Airport,” a statement by the Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said.

“Troops stationed within and around the airport responded and repelled the attackers.

“However, the bandits unfortunately shot and killed a staff member stationed at the perimeter fence who raised alarm on sighting them.

“Airport operations resumed with scheduled flights, departing after the incident.

Security forces are conducting operations in the airport general area. Further updates will be communicated to the public.

“Governor Nasir El-Rufa’i commended the security forces for their prompt response to the attack, and for repelling the attackers. He expressed sadness at the report of the casualty, and sent condolences to the family of the victim, while offering prayers for the repose of his soul.”

Also, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed apprehension over Saturday’s bandits’ attack on the Kaduna International Airport which disrupted flight activities for several hours.

In a statement yesterday in Abuja by its spokesman Debo Ologunagba, the party said the attack was a confirmation that the nation’s security, command and control structure had collapsed under the current administration.

According to the party, the incident has heightened security concerns and that nowhere seems safe in the country.

The PDP regretted that the attack took place while the ruling party was holding its national convention in Abuja.

The main opposition party bemoaned the reign of terrorists, kidnappers and other outlaws on the nation’s highways, railways and other public utilities.
