The Nigerian Airforce has begun investigations into the alleged killing of civilians in Kamadougou Yobe State by an Airforce pilot.
In a statement on Friday by Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, Director of Public Relations and Information, the Nigerian Air Force, said following intelligence on Boko Haram/ISWAP movements along the Kamadougou Yobe River line, an aircraft from the Air Component of Operation Hadin Kai was detailed to respond to the suspected terrorist activities in the area along the Nigeria/Niger border at about 0600hrs on 15 September 2021.
He said the aircraft, while operating South of Kanama observed suspicious movement consistent with Boko Haram terrorist behaviour whenever a Jet aircraft is overhead.
He said the pilot fired some probing shots. It is important to state that the area is well known for continuous Boko Haram /ISWAP activities.
He said the reports reaching Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Headquarters alleged that some civilians were erroneously killed while others were injured.
“Initial release denying the involvement of NAF aircraft was based on the first report available to the Air Component which was subsequently forwarded to NAF headquarters that civilians were bombed as the aircraft detailed for the mission was not carrying bombs.
According to him, a Board of Inquiry has been set up to thoroughly investigate the circumstances of the incident.
