The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has explained that the crash in Kaduna this morning was an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) popularly known as a drone and not its helicopter as earlier reported.


The Director, Public Relations and Information, NAF, AVM Edward Gabkwet, who said this in a statement, said the unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) experienced a mishap after take-off for a mission, at a location near Rumji Village and about 15 Km from the Base.


Gabkwet said since it is an unmanned vehicle, there were no casualties on board or the ground, noting that a preliminary investigation had since commenced to ascertain what might have caused the mishap.


He assured Nigerians that the minor setback would not, in any way, impinge on all ongoing operations, while appealing to media outlets to always verify before disseminating information.
