Search for Missing Alpha Jet Intensifies- Chief of Air Staff

The Nigerian Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshall Ademola Amosu has disclosed that the military is intensifying search and rescue efforts for Alpha Jet NAF 466 belonging to the Nigerian Air Force which went missing at the weekend after routine military operations.

Air Mashall Amosu made the remarks while responding to questions from State House Correspondents, after a meeting at the Presidential Villa.

He insisted that the aircraft was yet to be sighted as at the time he spoke with the media contrary to insinuations that some villagers discovered it.

While commending the public for showing enthusiasm in the search for the missing aircraft, Amosu said the information being passed by the public so far are good but not sufficient enough to define the area of search.

He said: "one of our Alpha Jets went on routine operation in the North-east and they lost contact with the control towers and that made us to immediately initiate search. The weather has not been helpful as we have deployed all our surveillance capability, the citizens have been very, very helpful and we have gotten good information from them.

"But the information we are getting from the citizens are good but not sufficient enough for us to define the area of search."
