Friends Mourn As Newly Married NAF Pilot Dies In Kaduna Crash

Friends, family members and associates of a Nigerian Air Force pilot, Flt Lt Alfred Ayodeji Olufade, are inconsolable at the moment as the young officer, who recently got married, died when a Beachcraft 350 aircraft crashed at the Kaduna International Airport on Friday.

Olufade and the newly appointed Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru, as well as nine other military personnel were onboard the jet when it crashed around 6pm on Friday. The 11 souls died in the tragic incident.

Friends and associates of Olufade have since taken to the social media to express raw grief over the sad demise of the officer.

A tweep, @Sir_KB, wrote, “My heart is in pain. I lost my friend. Flight Lt. AA Olufade. He got hitched months back and often teased me to get out of the bachelorhood. Rest well Freddy.”

@OvieNews said, “Rest in Peace Alfred. Flight Lt. AA Olufade just married two months ago. Our Heroes.”

Also, @SodyBar stated, “Olufade is a close associate. He got married February this year. We’re all disheartened!”

“We’re all saddened by his death. Everyone affiliated with Kuje seminary will surely miss him. May the Almighty grant you eternal rest,” @EmekaWilfred wrote.

When the wild cat kills the poor in the nation, it hardly makes headlines, but when the elites are snatched away, then a terrible event has happened..

Most people that get jobs in Nigeria via connection and man know man are unqualified. That's the reason Nigeria is progressing backward.

Here is the 1960 antiquated aircraft that killed our gallant officers ..

This type of aircraft should be in an aviation museum and not flying in the sky

Sad indeed.

DONIIYA is Nigeria sole military aviator contractor .
They clinched the current contract to service Nigerian military jets during the Nigerian civil war .

It's a German company and they have been in Nigeria since 1966.

It is time to cancel that contract ..

This is a very sad development. We love our army chief . We just have to mourn him ,even though we know that Nigeria army are like a murderous gang.
They have committed lots of terrible atrocities.

But this crash is one too many .
Loosing these promising military guys is just too much to take ..


Nigeria military HARDWARE ARE EITHER 1) STOLEN BY BOKO-HARAM, 2) LOST IN BATTLE TO ISWAP, 3) LOST IN A CRASH.


MOST of the advanced military helicopters procured by GeJ and buhari have either crashed or have been damaged in war.


Just one of those helicopters if properly flown and managed is capable of not only defeating BOKO-HARAM, but can also overun NIGER AND CHAD PUT TOGETHER.

let the probe begin
