JUST IN: Military Aircraft crashes in Kaduna, top military officers feared dead

A military plane crashed in Kaduna State on Friday.

The aircraft crashed at a runway of the Kaduna international airport with 12 people on board, including top military officers and crew members.

The Nigerian Air Force confirmed the incident via a statement issued shortly after the crash.

NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, said the incident occurred near the Kaduna International Airport.

The incident was said to have occurred at about 6 pm while it was raining heavily.

The officers apparently were on their way to Kaduna State ahead of tomorrow’s passing out parade of soldiers from the Nigerian Army Depot in Zaria.
