A Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Helicopter has crashed in the process of landing while returning from an anti armed banditry combat mission in the Northwest Theatre under Operation HADARAN DAJI.

A statement by the director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola said though the details of the cause of the incident, which occurred at the Katsina Airport at about 3.30pm yesterday June 21, 2019 are still scanty, there was no loss of life, either of persons on board the helicopter or on the ground.

“The Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, has immediately directed the constitution of a Board of Inquiry to determine the exact cause of the incident,” he said. The statement therefore solicited the understanding and support of the general public as it strives daily to ensure the security of Nigeria and Nigerians.
