Tension As Presidential Aircraft Handed Over to the Air Force Crashed in Markurdi (Photo)

A spokesperson for the Nigerian Air Force has spoken out about the presidential jet that crashed recently in Benue state.

The Nigerian Air Force on Friday made public details of how a presidential aircraft handed over to it by the presidency crashed following a ‘mishap while taxing’ in Makurdi, Benue State.

Air Force spokesperson, Ayodele Famuyiwa said that the incident happened last week after a successful mission.
“The attention of the Nigerian air force (NAF)has been drawn to media report on the crash of one of the Agusta Westland 101 helicopters handed over recently by the presidency,” he said.

He added: “Contrary to the crash report, it is pertinent to state that the mishap occurred while the helicopter was taxing after a successful mission. The incident happened last week on the tarmac at 33 Logistics Group, Makurdi.

“The NAF has since set-up a board of officers to investigate the immediate and remote causes of the incident. The seven-man board is headed by Air-Vice Marshal Emmanuel Anebi. Details of the investigation would be communicated to the public as soon as the board concludes its assignment.”
