Sept 15 — Nigeria’s military today appeared to rule out sabotage after
an airforce jet disappeared while on operations in the insurgency-hit
control of the airspace” in the region.
But he said they were keeping an open mind: “There are so many possibilities… we are working on it.”
The Alpha Jet, with two pilots on board, left its base in Yola, Adamawa
state, at about 10:45 am (0945 GMT) on Friday and had been expected
back by midday the same day.
Badeh said the plane lost contact with the control tower as it returned, prompting an immediate search.
