Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has expressed sadness over the ill-fated passing of Ibrahim Attahiru, Chief of Army Staff and other officers who died after a plane crash that took place in Kaduna on Friday.

The aircraft was conveying 11 military officers on Friday evening before it crashed around the Kaduna international airport.

Reacting to the development, Osinbajo in a statement on Saturday describes the crash as unfortunate, adding that it reflects the commitment of the military to carrying out their duty.

He said, “I received with great sadness the news of an air crash involving the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Ibrahim Attahiru, and other officers of the Nigerian military yesterday.

“Their death while in active service in the defence of our country reflects the depth of sacrifice our military officers, men and women of the other ranks are often prepared to make.

“We honour the service of the Army Chief and all those involved in this unfortunate accident even as we continue to demonstrate our profound appreciation to all in our military services and in harm’s way. The gallantry of our heroes will always be remembered.

“I join the President and CIC of the Nigerian Armed Forces to commiserate with families, friends and colleagues of these gallant officers and men who died in the crash. I pray that God grants them the fortitude to bear the loss. May the memories of the departed remain ever blessed.”
