Boko Haram: Nigerian Air Force Declare Combat Aircraft ‘Missing’

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has declared one of its aircraft lost radar contact when on a mission.

In a statement on Wednesday, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet said the plane was “on routine mission in support of own troops at one of the Theatres of Operation in the Northern part of Nigeria”.

“Efforts are currently ongoing to locate its whereabouts. Details to follow”.

He however did not state how many people were on aboard.

Gabkwet also did not reveal whether the aircraft was lost in the North east or Northwest or even the North central part of Nigeria.

Recall that on 21 February, an Air Force plane on a mission to Minna Niger state crashed in Abuja.

All the six persons aboard the B350 aircraft died as it crash-landed on the final approach path of Abuja Runway 22.
