An Air Force jet crashed in Niger State on Monday, killing all seven people on board.

The ill-fated jet was a Mi-171 helicopter that was on a casualty evacuation mission. It had departed Zungeru Primary School en route to Kaduna but crashed near Chukuba Village in Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State.

The cause of the crash is still unknown, but it is believed that bad weather may have been a factor.

The seven people who were killed in the crash have been identified as:

  • Captain Aminu Umar
  • Flight Lieutenant Ebube Chukwu
  • Flight Lieutenant Adesina Ogunjobi
  • Sergeant Adewale Adegboye
  • Sergeant Musa Lawal
  • Sergeant Auwal Ibrahim
  • Corporal Chukwuemeka Okonkwo

The Nigerian Air Force has expressed its condolences to the families of the victims and has promised to investigate the cause of the crash.

The crash is a major setback for the Nigerian Air Force, which has been struggling with a number of issues in recent years, including a lack of funding and maintenance.

The crash also comes at a time when the Nigerian military is facing increasing threats from terrorist groups like Boko Haram and ISIS West Africa.

The loss of these seven airmen is a reminder of the dangers that the Nigerian military faces on a daily basis. Their sacrifice will not be forgotten.
