The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has refuted reports that one of its aircrafts crashed on Sunday in Kaduna.
Unconfirmed online media reports had gone viral claiming that a NAF fighter jet crashed around Kaduna on Sunday.
Reacting to the reports, NAF’s Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, debunked the reports, saying that there was “No crash in Kaduna.”
The NAF spokesman stressed that no NAF plane left Yola, Adamawa State for Kaduna on Sunday as rumored but added that he was still making contacts from other locations.
“No crash in Kaduna. No aircraft left Yola for Kaduna. I am making contact and awaiting information from other locations,” he added.
Periscope International recalls that the reports had speculated that another NAF jet might have crashed in Kaduna barely two months after a military plane carrying the immediate past Army Chief of Staff, Lt. General Ibrahim Attahiru and other top military officers crashed in Kaduna in May.
