A fighter jet belonging to the Nigerian Air Force on Friday crashed in Makurdi, Benue State capital, according to a report by The PUNCH.

Details about the incident were still sketchy as of the time of filing this report. A military source was quoted to have said two personnel of the Nigerian Air Force onboard ejected unhurt.

The source said, “An FT7-NI aircraft crashed today in Makurdi. The cause of the crash could not be immediately ascertained. It had two Airmen onboard. They ejected unhurt from the jet.”

Efforts to get the reaction of the service proved abortive.


Calls to the spokesperson for the service, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, were not answered.

He has also yet to respond to a message sent to him on the matter.
