The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has responded to speculations around the supposed wreckage of a missing NAF Alpha Jet declared missing while on a Boko Haram operation.

There are reports that the jet and a deceased pilot were found in the Bama area of Borno State.

Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, Director of Public Relations, in a statement on Monday, said the search was still ongoing.

The spokesman recalled that since March 31st when radar contact with the aircraft was lost, the NAF has been keeping members of the public updated.

Gabkwet said the media, as the watchdog of the society, have the right to continually inform the public but should verify sensitive stories before publication.

The statement assured Nigerians that they will be informed once the wreckage of the aircraft is found.

The military had dismissed a Boko Haram propaganda video on the incident. The sect had claimed it downed the jet.
