House Committee on Airforce mourns army chief

The House Committee on Airforce has expressed sadness over the tragic death of Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru and other officers.

The Chairman of the Committee, Hon. Shehu Koko, in a statement said the news came to him as a shock having embarked on an official duty to Makurdi, Benue State on Thursday with the late chief of army staff.

He said, ”the news of the crash is still a shock to me as I am aware of his hard work and tour to states across the Federation in a bid to find a lasting solution to the security challenges facing the country. It is unfortunate that this is coming at a time when the country’s service chiefs are doing everything possible to win the war against insurgency in Nigeria. This is painful and shocking, as I condole with President Muhammadu Buhari, the Military, Nigerian Army and Airforce.”

Koko while praying for the families of the deceased to bear the irreparable loss, urged the Nigerian military to sustain the fight and synergy in the interest of the country.
