Officers of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) are feared dead in a plane crash that occurred on Tuesday in Kaduna state, North West Nigeria.

News Central gathered that the incident involved a training aircraft which had two pilots on board. The development comes 11 months after a NAF aircraft crashed in Kaduna. The training aircraft is said to be one of the five Super Mushshak aircraft acquired five years ago, from Pakistan.

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 when the plane crashed, were killed.

Attahiru was said to be on his way to Kaduna to attend a passing-out parade for army recruits. A “system-wide investigation” was said to have been conducted into the incident involving military aircraft in the country.

On March 22, two Pakistan Air Force (PAF) pilots were killed after a Super Mushshak training aircraft crashed near Peshawar during a routine training mission.

Meanwhile, there has been no official reaction from the Nigerian Airforce at the time of filing the report.
