Friday the 21st of May 2021 was another dark day in Nigeria as we lost the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru alongside 10 other Army officers to a plane crash.
While details of the crash are yet to be officially confirmed at the time of this report, the crash was said to have taken place in Kaduna as the Chief of Army Staff and the crew were just coming from Abuja.
The president of Nigeria, His Excellency, Muhammad Buhari has reacted to this incident tweeting, ” this crash is a mortal blow to our underbelly, at a time our Armed Forces are poised to end the security challenges facing the country”.
We mourn this loss and commiserate with the families directly affected by this.
