Officers feared dead as Nigeria Air Force aircraft crashes in Kaduna

A training aircraft belonging to the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) crashed at the airforce base in Kaduna state today, April 19th during a training session.


Although details of the unfortunate incident are still sketchy, unconfirmed reports say two pilots were on board the aircraft at the time of the incident.


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.


Eleven months ago, Ibrahim Attahiru, Chief of Army Staff, and 10 other military officers died in a NAF’s Beechcraft 350, which crashed around the Kaduna International Airport in Kaduna.
