The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) reported that one of its MI-35P helicopters crash-landed in Port Harcourt, the capital of Rivers state, on Friday morning.



Edward Gabkwet, the NAF spokesperson, issued a statement providing details of the incident.

According to Gabkwet's statement released on Friday, the helicopter crash occurred at approximately 7:45 am. The mishap took place shortly after the aircraft had taken off for a crucial operation against economic saboteurs in Rivers state.

In the wake of the incident, the Nigerian Air Force is undoubtedly conducting a thorough investigation to determine the cause of the crash-landing. The safety and well-being of the aircrew involved are of utmost importance, and the NAF will undoubtedly take necessary measures to ensure their care and support.

The crash comes as a setback for the NAF's ongoing efforts to combat economic saboteurs in Rivers state. The operational implications of this incident will likely be assessed, and the NAF may need to reevaluate its strategy in the region.

As the Nigerian Air Force grapples with the aftermath of the MI-35P helicopter crash-landing in Port Harcourt, our thoughts go out to the aircrew involved, and we await further updates on the investigation. This incident underscores the challenges and risks associated with military operations, emphasizing the need for continuous vigilance and safety measures in the pursuit of national security.
