No Nigeria Air Force Helicopter Crashed Today – DHQ

No Nigeria Air Force Helicopter Crashed Today – DHQ

The Nigerian military has denied a report that a helicopter owned by the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) crashed in Yola, Adamawa State on Friday, November 21, 2014.

This was made known through the official Twitter handle of the defence headquarters: “Contrary to a report making the rounds, there was no crash involving any helicopter or air plane of the Nigerian Airforce today as reported in some social media channels.”

In a related development,  The same Defense Headquarters  just released a statement discrediting stories of  hunters and local vigilantes helping to liberate towns captured by Boko Haram in the North East.

Find their statement below ...

All the flimsy and exaggerated claims of hunters’ exploits in the ongoing operations are simply intended to foster a mischievous campaign aimed at disparaging and depreciating the professional efforts of the Nigerian military at containing the terrorists especially in Adamawa.

It is obvious that the intention is to ridicule and discourage the military. We are not moved. While appreciating the effort of the hunters and citizens who have been supporting our troops in the onslaught, the military still remains in the vanguard of the mission to rid the nation of terrorists and their activities.

We will remain focused and utilize only well-meaning support and advice in the ongoing campaign to wipe out terrorists. Much as we are aware of the politicians who are promoting the campaign for whatever reasons, we will not be distracted by their antics.

The result of present efforts will soon manifest for the whole world to see and Nigerians and their military will not be diminished, as intended by those engaging in the campaign of calumny against the Nigerian military We however caution Nigerians not to allow themselves to be hoodwinked into danger by some false reports on so called liberation of certain areas by ‘hunters’ as we can only vouch for areas where the military has reported cleared of terrorists.
