NDA Abduction: Major Datong, wife's photo surfaces online
Major Christopher Datonguser

While Nigerians are still bemoaning Tuesday's invasion of Nigerian Defence Academy in Kaduna by unknown gunmen, picture of Major Christopher Datong, the abducted senior military officer, has found its way to the internet.

The photograph, shared in a Facebook post on Tuesday by a certain Chidi Cali, had Datong spotting a ceremonial army outfit with his right arm wrapped around his heavily pregnant wife.

However, it is not immediately clear if the photo is a recent or old one.

WuzupNigeria reported that the assailants invaded Nigeria's foremost security academy on motorbikes around 1:00am on Tuesday and killed two soldiers, identified as Lieutenant Commodore Wulah and Flight Lieutenant Okoronwo.

After the killings, the gunmen reportedly abducted Datong and fled the academy.

They randomly operated for hours and left without any resistance.

Shortly after they departed, soldiers in the military architecture made efforts to trail them but failed.
