No Clue Yet On Missing Alpha Jet


Three days after a Nigerian Air Force Alpha jet on a mission to rout Boko Haram insurgents in Adamawa border towns got missing, reports indicated that the missing jet was yet to be found.
The Alpha Jet (NAF 466) was reported by Nigerias Defence Headquarters to have got missing on Friday.

The aerial bombardments, insiders say, have left the Boko Haram insurgents suffering extensive losses in men and equipment, though reports say that as the military bombed their locations from above, the terrorists also began to plot against the aircraft carrying out the operation.
Meanwhile, soldiers fighting the Boko Haram insurgents in the northern parts of Adamawa have alleged that they are not well fed and have been operating on empty stomachs for days.
Some of the soldiers expressed fear of more dissertations should the authorities continue to show poor attitude towards their welfare. They urged the authorities to provide them with modern equipment so they could face the insurgents squarely.
There are increasing cases of saboteurs in our operations. We are poorly equipped; sometimes, bullets are rationed, yet we are to go and confront well equipped militants.
Many of us have overstayed here no transfer, as if we are the only soldiers in this country. Our allowances are not paid as at when due, one of the soldiers in Michika stated.
