Koko said that the house had the determination to investigate the remote cause of the ugly incident to avoid future recurrence.

The chairman gave thanks to God that no life was lost in the accident which occurred as the helicopter was returning from a routine exercise.

“As members of parliament, particularly the House of Representatives Committee on Air Force, we are disturbed that such incident  occurred.

“Especially at a time when the Air Force had assured the parliament and the nation that the force was fully prepared to take on insecurity head-on.

“The committee which has pledged its full support to the force is deeply saddened about this unfortunate situation.

“We, therefore, invite the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, to brief the committee on the immediate and remote causes of the crash.
