Nigerian Air Force Jet "Accidentally" Bombs Kunkuna Village, Katsina by Omooba77: 7:41pm On Jul 06
Tragedy struck on Wednesday as a fighter jet operated by the Nigerian Air Force bombed Kunkuna village in the Safana Local Government Area of ​​Katsina State, killing a yet-to-be ascertained number of villagers.

Though details of the incident are still sketchy, it was learnt that the pilots of the military jet “accidentally” hit the wrong coordinates while targeting a camp belonging to bandits in the area.

"A military jet earlier today dropped airstrikes on Kunkuna Village in Safana Local Government Area of ​​Katsina State. We cannot confirm the number of casualties now,” a source said.

SaharaReporters called Edward Gabkwet, Air Force spokesman but the calls were not answered nor returned.

On Tuesday, terrorists attacked an advance team in the convoy of President Muhammadu Buhari in Katsina.

Villagers in the past have reported some civilian casualties in aerial bombardments in Northeastern Nigeria.

In 2020, a military jet deployed to repel an attack by Boko Haram dropped a bomb that landed in a compound where civilians were having child christening.

A fighter jet also on a mission against Boko Haram extremists in April 2021 mistakenly bombed men of the Nigerian Army, killing over 20 officers.

The soldiers who were reinforced from Ngandu village were said to be on their way to Mainok, headquarters of the Kaga Local Government Area of Borno state which was under attack by militants from the Islamic State-backed faction of Boko Haram, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), formerly known as Jamā'at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da'wah wa'l-Jihād.

Some of the Chibok schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram in 2014 and freed last year also said three of their classmates were killed by Air Force bombardments.

In June 2021, an offensive aerial bombardment of the NAF Alpha jet carried out around Genu town in Niger State resulted in the killing of some wedding guests.

In September 2021, about 10 villagers were killed after a military jet bombed a village in the Yunusari Local Government Area of Yobe State.

A few days later, an Air Force jet dropped a bomb on a Nigerian community in the Lake Chad region.

In February 2022, an airstrike by the Nigerian Air Force targeting bandits killed seven children and wounded five others by mistake in the Niger Republic

Hmmm! This is not the first time something like this is happening. Last year or two years ago, some soldiers mistakenly killed their colleagues in an attempt to fight Boko Haram. This shows they are not trained. I do not even believe it is a real mistake. It might be a political mistake.

When you hire and position abokki pilots in the name of nepotism and ethnocentrism, this is the kind of result you get.

They will gather some empty brained abokki idiots and give them lofty jobs... And then they will tell you that they are qualified because they attend(ed) on the job "trainings". In other words, just unfairly give them the job first even if they're natural retarrds with below par IQ... They will attend local and international 'training programmes' to qualify them for the job that their substandard brains can never muster the competence to properly execute.

Useless country.

Train services may soon commence. The government is loosing revenue per second and can’t roll back the train up and till the remaining captives are set free, pretending they care.

The sect warehousing the captives aren’t asking for money, but to set their top commanders free. These commanders are not kept in kirikiri but at Kuje.

Report has it that soldiers were withdrawn 24hours before the attack, leaving a ragtag Police and probably civil defense personnel together with ill equipped prison officials vs. a copious number of terrorist armed with grenades and powerful explosives to fall a prison wall as fortified as a maximum security kuje, and did what they did.

In little time, the hostages maybe set free and the train will continue, they may even increase transport fare blaming it on diesel scarcity to cover for lost revenue during the stagnant periods.

How would they drive revenue back to the train when the populace has great fear of using it and had even got used to plying the road? The road maybe attacked again, this time with serious casualties so as to drive revenue and passengers back to the train. And so the vicious circle continues.
Just thinking O!

The incompetence of this Government has touched all other aspects of the country.

One would think that a man that contested for presidency many times and finally won will be coming to make Nigeria Heaven on Earth..... Not knowing he'll be coming to take us back 1000 years.
