Nigeria Airforce Officers used to illustrate the story

The Nigerian Air Force has not been able to confirm reports of a military plane crash, three hours after the news surfaced online.

“No crash in Kaduna. No aircraft left Yola for Kaduna,” Air Force spokesman Edward Gabkwet said in a message to Peoples Gazette. “I am making contact and awaiting information from other locations.”

Reports circulating online had said a military plane left Yola and crashed in Kaduna on Sunday afternoon.


The yet unconfirmed report came months after two Nigerian military planes crashed in Abuja and Niger while on a reconnaissance mission in both states.
