Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Adesola Amosu has said that search and rescue operations are still ongoing to find the missing Nigerian Air Force Alpha fighter jet.
The Airforce jet with two pilots on board went missing somewhere around Adamawa State since Friday and its whereabouts is yet unknown.
The jet had left Yola at about 10:45am September 12 on what the military says was a routine operational mission and was expected back by 12:00 noon but it never retuned.
Amosu, who was speaking to State House correspondents shortly after meeting with Vice President Namadi sambo Sambo said that the missing jet would be found.
Meanwhile there are fears the missing plane may have been shot down by Boko Haram. The military though has not confirmed this and even the sect too has not issued any information to that effect.
But we asked a security expert of the possibility of Boko Haram bringing down and whether the sect even has the capacity to do it.
