Shehu Sani, former Kaduna Central Senator, has reacted to reports that bandits shut down an Alpha jet of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF).
Sani said the attack of a NAF jet was an indication that bandits have taken the war to a new level.
Recall that NAF, after denying that the jet was shot down, confirmed that bandits were responsible for the attack.
NAF Director of Information, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, had said the fighter jet was returning from a successful air interdiction between the boundaries of Zamfara and Kaduna states when it came under heavy fire from bandits and crashed in Zamfara.
Gabwet said Dairo successfully ejected from the aircraft, using his survival instincts.
However, Sani tweeted: “The capacity of bandits in the North to threaten Aviation takes the war to a new level.”
