Missing Jet: NAF Dismisses Boko Haram Video As False by Islie: 9:36pm On Apr 02
By Okodili Ndidi,


The Nigerian Air Force has dismissed claims by terror group Boko Haram that it gunned down the missing Alpha jet, which disappeared from radar on Wednesday, March 31.

Boko Haram claimed responsibility for downing the aircraft in a viral video.

But the Director Public Relations and Information Nigerian Air Force, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, said the viral video could be clips from a previous incident.

He insisted the video is fraught with inconsistencies that established it was fake, adding the lush vegetation in one of the videos suggest it was not in the Northeast.

NAF spokesperson, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, said: “We have seen some videos but there is nothing that has proven that the aircraft in those clips belongs to us, or have you seen a Nigerian Air Force aircraft number or the body of Air Force pilot or have you seen any Air Force unifor until we get all these details strengthen out, we are not going to go into speculation.

“That video could have been shot somewhere. I have seen four videos so far, one of them has lush vegetation in the background, and I wonder where they have such vegetation in the Northeast. Unless they did something and they are releasing the clips bit by bit, we are waiting.

“Except we have evidence, because like I said, these persons have families and you cannot go their wives, parents or wards, you must bring concrete evidence. There must be something to show”.

No counter video for proof

This is the more reason i would believe Boko Haram version because you won't take time and be crying with epistles if you didn't feel disgraced

That plane was shot down for real


If that plane was not shot down and the carcass not taken by the terrorists, the NAF would have located the crash site and recovered the plane debris but they can't because it has been taken away and that area may even be a boko stronghold where they can't penetrate.
Its not good news to me because those young men could as well be my siblings and they have families but NAF Has a duty to say the truth though I understand why they can't. It is a demoralizing news.
For captainStephen did you see in the video(check pic below)which boko haram released showing the number of the plane (457). I guess you are blind too. The second pic below shows the underside of the wing with same number like in the first pic
Blind bat!

Even with flight liutenant Aborinwas name tag in the video they still have the effontery to deny it......We remember how this same Airforce once denied the their captured pilots after he ejected ..even after Boko Haram showed the pilot in the video they still denied that he wasnt their pilot not until his course mates started saying he was their coursemate and officer

Please NAF do us a Favour and release the authentic video.

If you can't, then don't blame us for taking BH video as true.

Castrated and spineless bigoted idiots.

Pls Naf shouldn't be quick to dismiss. Do your investigation and tell Nigerians exactly what went down with the jet.
That is why Nigerians don't believe their leaders anymore. They don't admit guilt or take responsibility for their action thus leave room for improvement. They are so quick to denial and dismiss news even if it true and later admit to it like in the case of endsars protestants vs military at lekki.

When the government lie to the people it is called politics but when the people revolt the government call it insurrection.Time will tell who is telling the truth because Nigeria have had multiple incidence like the past which the APC shamelessly denied & was proven wrong.

The case of the adamawa NAF whose jet was allegedly shot down by bh terrorists, captured & gruesomely beheaded comes to mind.It was his colleagues in service who identified him when BH loaded the video while the military denied him as one of them.So pathetic.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.vanguardngr.com/2014/10/confusion-beheading-air-force-pilot-captured-killed/amp/

Just pray the case of the two brave NAF pilots never become like the unfortunate case of the Adamawa pilot whose jets was also allegedly downed but shamelessly denied by the NAF until the video of his beheading by BH showed up.
