The Boko Haram Terrorists faction led by Abubakar Shekau has taken responsibility for the crash involving an alpha jet operated by the Nigerian Air Force (NAF).
The jet, said to be on a mission to provide air support for troops on the ground fighting Boko Haram insurgents, had on Wednesday evening, March 31, lost contact with radar in Borno state.
HumAngle reported that the sect were seen in the video attacking the jet which was flying at low range in a gunfight.
The Terrorists had in their possession machine guns, especially ones that appear to be anti-aircraft weapons. Immediately the jet crash-landed, they moved to the debris and removed some components of the jet.
