BREAKING: Nigerian Air Force Jet Goes Missing

A Nigerian Air Force Alpha-Jet has gone missing during an air interdiction mission in battle with Boko Haram insurgents in Borno State in the North-East.

The fighter jet went missing on Wednesday around 5pm, amidst fears that it might have been captured or shot down by the Boko Haram terrorists – who are now being aided by a more deadly faction, the Islamic State West African Province fighters.

The Nigerian Air Force in a release confirmed the missing Alpha Jet, noting that the details of the whereabouts of the aircraft were still sketchy.

The NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, said, “A NAF Alpha-Jet has lost contact with radar in Borno State, while on interdiction mission in support of ground troops.
