The Nigerian Air Force on Monday said it was investigating report that it killed 20 Army personnel by accident in an air strike at Mainok, Borno State.

Report had emerged that an Air Force fighter jet on a mission against Boko Haram extremists mistakenly bombed men of the Nigerian Army, killing over 20 officers.

The troops were said to have been reinforced from Ngandu village to Mainok, which was under attack by militants from the Islamic State-backed faction of Boko Haram, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP).

Reacting, NAF in a tweet on Monday said the general public will be duly updated after it concludes its investigation on the incident.

It, however, urged Nigerians to forward their enquirers to [email protected]

“The attention of the @NigAirForce has been drawn to reports alleging “How NAF Killed over 20 Nigerian Army Personnel by Accident in Air Strike,” at Mainok which is about 55klm to Maiduguri.

”The NAF wishes to state that visuals and reports being circulated are being investigated and the generally public will be duly updated on the alleged incident.

“All enquiries should please be directed to the Office of the Director of Public Relations and Information, Headquarters Nigerian Air Force or forwarded to [email protected]
