Analysts Expose Boko Haram’s Doctored Video On NAF Jet Crash by Islie: 3:38pm On Apr 03
Some analysts have detailed how a Boko Haram video claiming to have brought down a fighter jet was doctored.

The jet, NAF 475, went off the radar on Wednesday while on a mission to provide support to ground troops fighting Boko Haram.

The whereabouts of the two pilots remain known, as the Nigerian air force said it is still on a search and rescue mission.

On Friday, the Abubakar Shekau-led faction of Boko Haram had claimed responsibility for the incident.

In a video released by the insurgents, an aircraft was seen on fire mid-air.

The insurgents, who claimed to have shot the jet down, are later seen at the crash site making a mockery of the Nigerian military.

Commenting on the video, Hugo Kaaman, a Sweden-based analyst, said the supposed explosion of the jet was from a 2012 video.

“Boko Haram just released a video claiming it shows a NAF jet shot down by the group. Looking at the video, it appears as if the jet explodes mid-air. However, this is not true. BH took a 2012 video showing a SyAAF helicopter exploding mid-air over Idlib and superimposed it. Weak,” he tweeted.

He said while the jet really crashed, “this video merely highlights Boko Haram’s fake footage of the shootdown itself”.

Calibre Obscura, another analyst, said the Boko Haram video was “deceptively edited,” as it is unclear what caused the crash.

“I’d say HMG/cannon fire or mechanical issues,” the analyst added.

War Noir, an analyst who also checked the video, said it “seems to be edited” and that the “airplane is likely damaged before (not by MANPADS but likely by other weapons, perhaps HMG)”.

BOKO HARAM ‘DOESN’T HAVE THE WEAPON’ TO BRING DOWN AN ALPHA JET

The air force, while dismissing Boko Haram’s video, had said the insurgents lack the capabilities to bring down the jet.

“Although the video is still being thoroughly analysed, it is evident that most parts of the video were deliberately doctored to give the false impression that the aircraft was shot down,” the air force had said.

Senior military officers who spoke with TheCable on Saturday said it is only a “helicopter gunship” that can be easily brought down in that manner.

“The jet lost navigation, or it could be round jam, avionics. Then this happened overhead of the BHT camp, and it crashed,” one of the officers, who is also a pilot, said.

“Anti-aircraft cannot drop an alpha jet like that. Only helicopter gunships are easily dropped like that. It must be a technical failure. For us, it calls for no comment because it’s no issue.”

Another officer said an anti-aircraft gun that could bring down that jet would be an “artillery Shilka that its radar must be working 100 percent”.

“Even if Boko Haram has that Shilka, they can’t have the radar,” he said.

“Not even MANPADS will bring down that NAF 475. The jet is a smart aircraft. The Control system it uses is different from normal airplanes. The jet can do 360 degrees within seconds to dodge any missile. In fact, if any round of missiles is a second close, it could still swerve to dodge.”

The officers said they’ve analysed the video and that the most significant weapon observed is a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG), and this, they said, cannot bring down the air force fighter jet.

Quick Correction:
The video seems to be editted. So the airplane is likely damaged before (not by MANPADS but likely by likely other weapons, perhaps HMG).

Doctored or not doctored, I wonder why NAF can't bomb bh boys to smithereens the way we saw it in Commando film that year.

NAF with mouth.

With all these mouth, at the end it will be known that pampered Boko Haram were the ones who actually bring down the jet.

I know for a sure that Boko Haram are always scared of jets hovering around their den..... So there is no liberty and guts for them to take down a jet....

One thought with the change in the service chiefs, Nigeria will heave a sigh of relief from the shameless lying trait of the military under the past predecessors but alas the shamefacedness is never going to abate.Even with all the evidence abounding about the ill fated plane?

The Alpha jet is just a mere toy that can be shot down by even an RPG unlike the F-16 fighter jet especially when it is flying @ low altitude.The NAF can continue to spin its conspiracy theory but as long as the pilots or black box of the down jet cant be ascertained, then all attempts to debunk BH propaganda is simply a propaganda by the NAF itself.

From the videos we have seen there are two clear facts in this whole episode

1:. A NAF Alpha Jet crashed in an active theatre

2::. Boko Haram has the crash site , wreckage and remains of the pilots firmly in it's custody

All other propaganda by both parties is immaterial!!!!

As we always put it on this forum : Rumors are spread by fools and believed by idiots

Some swines, enemies of the state, AKA, children of hate, frustrations and perdition were all happy and shining their brown, dirty teeth over this sad news about the pilots.

All the evil, sorrow, tears and blood these enemies pray for will never depart from their miserable lives.

No be curse,
Na FACT.

(CHILDREN Of perdition, you can quote this if this gets to your bone marrow).

GOD BLESS ALL OUR MILITARY PERSONNEL.
God bless Nigeria ��

They can’t bomb them because BH boys live amongst civilians

Book Haram don't have the weaponry to bring down a fighter jet flying at high altitude. If they did they would sneak it close to an international airport and start bringing down civilian aircrafts.... Ground to air missile facilities are extremely expensive and I don't even think the Nigeria army has one...


I believe that report.

Please what are those saying? By now I expected @NAF to show Nigerian and the world aerial photographs of that jet and what happened. Does it mean that Bh has more organized media than our NAF?
