The Nigerian Air Force has set-up a board of officers to investigate the immediate and remote causes of the crash of one of the Agusta Westland 101 helicopters handed over recently by the Presidency.

NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, disclosed this in a statement issued on Friday.

“The 7-man board is headed by Air Vice Marshal Emmanuel Anebi. Details of the investigation would be communicated to the public as soon as the Board concludes its assignment,” Famuyiwa said.

He added that “contrary to the crash report, it is pertinent to state that the mishap occurred while the helicopter was taxing after a successful mission. The incident happened last week on the tarmac at 33 Logistics Group, Makurdi.”
