According to the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadiq Abubakar, the three pilots involved in the crash had ejected before their aircraft crashed into the general area Katamkpe Hill, but Baba-Ari succumbed to the injuries he sustained upon impact on the ground.

The two others who were injured in the crash are in stable conditions and currently receiving treatment at the Defence Intelligence Agency clinic in Abuja.

Air Marshal Abubakar also announced that the Nigerian Air Force has since launched a probe into the cause of the crash.
