Kaduna Jet Crash Was Setup To Kill, Stop Army Chief Attahiru’s Plan To End Terrorism, Ex-Kaduna GOC Tells Tinubu

Former General Officer Commanding (GOC) 1 Division of the Nigerian Army, Maj Gen Danjuma Ali-Keffi (rtd), weekend, wants President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to probe the air crash that killed former Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Ibrahim Attahiru.

He alleged that the crash was linked to terror sponsors, who set it up to stop the effective plans the Late Chief of Army Staff erected to stop terrorism and insurgency in the North.

Ali-Keffi made the appeal in an interview with THISDAY.

Ali-Keffi, who had been billed to receive the late army chief, as GOC 1 Division in Kaduna, cited some facts to back his claim, and cited:

  • The sudden change of time for Attahiru’s trip to Kaduna,
  • The change of aircraft, change of airport of landing, from the military airstrip to the Kaduna International Airport
  • His landing in a turbulent, stormy weather, and
  • The ear-shattering explosion that occurred before the crash
  • No crater or impact on the crash area
  • Bodies of the passengers were flung out of the aircraft and burnt beyond recognition long before the aircraft came down.

He said that all these were strong proofs that a pre-crash “explosion” had occurred on board before the ill-fated plane came down.

Alli-Keffi wondered why  no less a person than the Chief of Army Staff and 11 senior officers died in a “suspicious” plane crash and the matter would be swept under the carpet.

The full report of the crash investigation was not made known, he pointed out.

Ali-Keffi said Attahiru devised the strategy to end terrorism in the North, part of which was infiltration of terror groups and the instigation of crisis among terror leaders, which culminated in the elimination of Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, by a rival terror group, Islamic State for West African Province (ISWAP).

Part of the strategy was to also cut off the oxygen of terrorism, including funding and logistics, and to take down terror financiers, Ali-Keffi stated.

Attahiru and 11 senior military officers died in a plane crash in Kaduna, when the aircraft was preparing to land at the Kaduna International Airport. The crash also killed the crew members.
