The plane being shot down
Jama’atu Ahlussunnah Lidda’awati Wal Jihad, the Abubakar Shekau-led faction of Boko Haram, has released a footage of it shooting down the missing Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Alpha Jet Aircraft.
The jet had on Wednesday evening lost contact with radar in Borno state.
The aircraft was on a mission to provide support for troops on the ground fighting Boko Haram insurgents.
Edward Gabkwet, the NAF spokesperson, in a statement on Friday, said the whereabouts of the two flying officers piloting the jet were unknown.
Boko Haram in a video released on Friday claimed its members shot down the jet.
According to HumAngle, the group also showed fighters carrying RPG and artillery equipment, as well as a corpse of the pilot and the aircraft’s debris.
In February, an aircraft of the Air Force crashed at the Abuja airport — with all seven personnel on board dead.
