As word of the crash filtered in, a top NAF officer who did not want to be named in public told the Daily Sun that the NAF base in Yola was already in mourning mode.

“I can tell you authoritatively that a NAF Alfa Jet has crashed in Kaduna,” the source stated, however the NAF has yet to confirm the disaster. The jet took off from Yola on its way to Kaduna to conduct anti-bandit operations.

“We don’t know the condition of the crew on board right now, but a search team has left for the crash location. The Air Force base in Yola is currently in mourning, as this crash has become too much for the NAF; the authorities must act, even if it means going spiritual, for this is not a regular occurrence.”

The source was noticeably upset by the disaster, which occurred less than a month after the one in Kaduna that killed the former chief of army staff and eleven others.
