The Nigerian Air Force (NAF), stated that it has no information on the reported crash of another military plane in Kaduna State on Sunday.
NAF made the disclosure in a reaction to earlier reports of another military plane crash said to have involved one of its fighter jets on Sunday while on a clearance operation against bandits.
It will be recalled that according to earlier reports, a military aircraft crashed somewhere in Kaduna State.
A source that spoke with Daily Post on the incident disclosed that the crashed plane is an Alpha jet.
The source said, “The fighter jet left Yola, the Adamawa capital, this morning to go clear bandits.”
But reacting to the development, NAF’s spokesperson, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet said the headquarters had not received any report of a crash involving its aircraft, adding that no alpha jet left Yola for Kaduna.
He however added that he is making contacts and awaiting information from other locations.
