A military aircraft belonging to the Nigerian Airforce, NAF, has crashed in Kaduna state with many officers on board reportedly killed.

Recall that last year a military aircraft conveying the former, Chief of Army Staff, Ibrahim Attahiru, and 10 others, crashed killing all the officers onboard including the Army Chief.

It was gathered that the trainer aircraft, an MFI-395 Super Mushshaks, had two pilots on board.

Efforts to get the reaction of the spokesman for the Nigerian Air Force, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet proved abortive as he could not be reached on his mobile line.

The development Is coming 11 months after a NAF aircraft crashed in Kaduna.

The incident, which occurred in May 2021, involved a Beechcraft 350, and the aircraft crashed around the Kaduna international airport.

Ibrahim Attahiru, Chief of Army Staff, and 10 other military officers who were on board, were killed.

Late Attahiru was said to be on his way to Kaduna to attend a passing-out parade for Army recruits.

Following the incident, members of the minority caucus in the house of representatives had asked the federal government to ensure that a “system-wide investigation” is conducted into such incidents involving military aircraft in the country.
