Against the widely spread report, the Nigerian Air Force has said no military aircraft left Yola for Kaduna or crashed anywhere in Kaduna State on Sunday, 18 July, 2021.
Nevertheless, PRNigeria gathered that a military jet successfully conducted aerial bombardments of notorious enclaves of armed bandits in one of the North-West States on Sunday.
An intelligence officer told PRNigeria that the aircraft took off from Katsina for an anti-banditry operation against bandits in a neighbouring state.
The operative said: “The aircraft took off from Katsina State this morning (Sunday) and completed its mission against bandits’ dens in the targetted areas.”
Attempts to reach the NAF spokesman, Air Commodore Edward Gabwet, were not successful as his mobile phone was repeatedly busy./SHARE THIS
