The operative said: “The aircraft took off from Katsina State this morning and completed its mission against bandits’ dens in the targetted areas….”
Independent sources confirmed to Newsdiaryonline that there was indeed no military plane crash in Kaduna on Sunday.However, one of the sources expressed fresh fears to Newsdiaryonline that a plane believed to be on military mission “disappeared from the radar between Funtua in Katsina State and Gusau in Zamfara state” on Sunday.
Katsina and Zamfara states are the hotbed of ongoing banditry and the battle to checkmate the criminality.
“No military plane crashed in Kaduna but a plane believed to be on a military operation disappeared from the radar between Funtua and Gusau,” the source to Newsdiaryonline.
There was no official confirmation Sunday of any military plane crash in the region.
