The Nigerian Defence Academy, Kaduna has urged residents of Mando, Tsamiya, Kauya and Afaka general areas not to panic over its scheduled shooting exercise.

This is contained in a statement by the NDA Public Relations Officer, Maj. Mohammed Maidawa, on Wednesday in Kaduna.

Mr Maidawa said the exercise is for the army cadets of 73 and 74 Regular Courses. The exercises, he said, are scheduled to hold from April 18 to April 20 and from April 26 to April 27.

“The NDA assures the general public that necessary safety measures have been put in place for the successful conduct of the exercise. However, the general public is advised to avoid trespassing in the general area throughout the period of the exercise,” the army said.
