It’s more sorrow as Major Christopher Datong, the military officer abducted by bandits at the Nigerian Defence Academy, Afaka, Kaduna State, on Tuesday, has been found dead.
A report by PM News said the Major’s lifeless body was discovered Tuesday evening, hours after he was taken captive by the bandits who breached the security of the country’s foremost military university in the small hours of the morning, killing two officers.
The blood-baying bandits had placed a ₦200 million ransom on Major Datong’s head.
Things, however, took another tragic turn as the officer’s body was discovered.
Even if your heart was made of steel, it would melt when you see one of the lovely family pictures of Major Datong and his pregnant wife that went viral on social media in the wake of his abduction and subsequent death.
Major Datong was born on January 4, 1978, and he hailed from Pankshin in Plateau State.
