A faction of Boko Haram has released a footage showing the crashing of a Nigerian fighter aircraft, which was declared missing two days ago.
HumAngle reports that the video showed fighters carrying Rocket Propelled Grenade, artillery equipment, corpse of the pilot and the aircraft’s debris.
The website shared screenshots of the crashed jet, both mid-air and on the ground, on Friday via its Twitter page.
The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Alpha-Jet was deployed for an operation against the Boko Haram sect.
On Wednesday, the military confirmed it went off radar. No traces had been found since.
The fighter aircraft lost contact with base at about 5pm, same day, while on an interdiction mission in support of ground troops.
The jet was seeing flying around Goni Kurmiri and Njimia villages after attacking terrorist locations around the Sambisa Forest.
