President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sadness over the air crash that claimed the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru, and other military officers.
Recall that Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru, and other military officers died in a crash close to Kaduna International Airport.
Reacting, Buhari in a statement by his Spokesman, Femi Adesina, on Friday, condoled with families of the deceased, the military and Nigerians in general.
He described them as “heroes who paid the ultimate price for peace and security in the land.”
While praying that God receives the souls of the patriots, Buhari said the crash “is one mortal blow to our underbelly, at a time our armed forces are poised to end the security challenges facing the country.”
He, therefore, pledged that the departed would not die in vain.
