Nigerian Air Force refutes Alpha jet crash in Kaduna on Sunday

152

Nigerian Air Force (NAF) on Sunday denied report another of its Alpha jet crashed in Kaduna.

NAF’s Director of Public Relations and Information (DOPRI), Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, said the headquarters has yet to receive any operational report of crash of its aircraft and that no alpha jet left Yola for Kaduna.

On Sunday evening, a jet that left the NAF Base in Yola, the Adamawa State Capital for an anti-banditry operation crashed in a village in Kaduna, according to reports.

Rescue operation was reportedly commissioned to search for crew members, including the pilot.

Persecondnews recalls that about two months ago, a NAF jet  crashed killing the nation’s Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru and 10 other officers in Kaduna.

On April 2, another Alpha jet crashed in Borno during an operation while there was the Minna-bound Beechcraft KingAir350i crash of March 21, that killed all seven people onboard.

About 11 military plane crashes in Nigerian since 2015 with no fewer than 33 officers killed.

These include the NAF plane crash, which killed seven onboard on August 29, 2015; F-7NI jet crash on October 10, 2015 and Augusta Westland crash in Makurdi on November 15, 2015.
