The two jets crashed a few meters from each other during the aerial display rehearsal ahead of Nigeria’s 58yh Independence Day celebration on October 1.
Meanwhile, the President of the Nigeria Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has commiserated with the Nigerian Air Force and the family of the Air Force pilot who lost life during a crash in Abuja on Friday
It was a sad ceremony as some of the Nigerian Air Force officer were consoled by their colleagues during the burial of two officers who were killed during the fighter jet crash in Abuja.
Saraki in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, described the dead pilot and his colleagues who partook in the flying rehearsal ahead of the nation’s 58th Independence anniversary on Monday as “true heroes dedicated to their professional calling.”
He lamented the crash incident and called for special recognition for the officers – both dead and alive – who partook in the unfortunate national assignment.
