The wreckage of the missing Nigerian Air Force’s Alpha-Jet has been found in Konduga, about 30 kilometres outside of Maiduguri in Borno.
Although the Air Force authorities are yet to confirm this development, sources on Friday said the fighter jet was seen flying around Goni Kurmiri and Njimia villages after attacking terrorist locations at the Sambisa axis.
The sources, however, did not give any information about the whereabouts of the pilot and the co-pilot.
Air Force authorities had announced that the plane lost contact with the radar on Wednesday evening while on an interdiction mission in support of ground troops as part of the ongoing counterinsurgency operations in the northeast.
