The Nigerian Air force on Sunday dismissed a report that one of its fighter jets had crashed in Kaduna.
An unconfirmed report had claimed that a NAF Alpha jet crashed at an undisclosed location in Kaduna State.
According to the report, the jet left Yola, Adamawa State, for a clear-out operation against bandits on Sunday morning and crashed in Kaduna.
But the NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, in his reaction to the development, urged Nigerians to disregard the report.
