A yet-to-be ascertained number of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) personnel reportedly feared dead in a plane crash in Kaduna State today, Naija News learnt.

According to reports the incident involved a training aircraft which had two pilots on board.

No official statement has yet been released on the incident as details of the accident is still sketchy.

Meanwhile, bandit terrorists had injured scores in a fresh attack on Southern Kaduna last Saturday.

The assailants according to reports, stormed Agban Kagoro in the Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna in their large numbers and killed two people.

The attack, Naija News understands is coming barely a month after a group of bandit terrorists attacked the town and killed no fewer than 34 people including two military personnel.

At least seven persons were injured and over 200 houses and 32 shops were burnt, during the deadly attack.

A statement issued to newsmen by the state Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, confirmed this.

The government thereafter slammed a 24-hour curfew on two neighbouring local governments of Jema’a and Kaura.
