The incident happened near the Kaduna International Airport, according to Air Force spokesperson Edward Gabkwet.

“An air crash involving a @NigAirForce aircraft occurred near Kaduna International Airport this evening. The crash’s immediate cause is still being investigated. “More information will be available soon,” he said.

It was pouring fiercely at the time of the incident, which occurred at 6 p.m.

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

The aircraft, with the registration number 5N-R203, was scheduled to land at the Nigerian Airforce Base in Mando before diverting to the Kaduna airport.

The crash is thought to have involved at least 12 senior military officers and crew members.

This year, the Air Force has been involved in a couple of tragedies.

In March, an Air Force plane that was supporting ground troops fighting Boko Haram terrorists went missing in Borno’s north-east.

A military plane crashed in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, in February, killing seven officials.
