The Minority Caucus of the House of Representatives is demanding an investigation over the attack on the Kaduna International Airport by terrorists on Saturday.

The caucus in a statement by its Minority Leader, Ndudi Elumelu, said that the development is another frightening commentary on the apparent collapse of our national security and intelligence gathering coordination.

“The Minority Caucus is deeply concerned and alarmed by the manifest lack of capacity by the APC administration to secure our nation to the extent that a strategic international airport in our country could be invaded and taken over by terrorists.

“Airports, especially international airports across the world, are usually highly secured areas. Therefore, the circumstances that allowed for the invasion of the Kaduna International Airport speak volumes about the failure of the APC administration”, the statement read in part.

Hon. Elumelu noted that the attack on the airport at the time when our roads, railways, and communities are being overrun by bandits, kidnappers, and invaders has heightened fear across the country as well as sent a very worrisome signal to the international community regarding the safety of our airports and the worsening insecurity in Nigeria.

The minority caucus called for an urgent comprehensive investigation into the remote and immediate circumstances leading to the apparent compromising of security at the airport to pave way for the eventual invasion by the terrorists.

“Our caucus urges the Federal Government to immediately beef up security in all our airports and other public convergence facilities in our country so as to forestall a re-occurrence of such terrifying attack,” the statement added.
