The Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB) has submitted an interim report on the Air Force aircraft, King Air 350, that crashed at the vicinity of Kaduna Civil Airport on 21 May 2021, killing the then Chief of Army Staff, Ibrahim Attahiru, and 10 others.
The Chief Executive Officer of AIB, Akin Olateru, while presenting the report to the Chief of Air Staff, Isyaka Amao, on Wednesday,
said it contained 27 findings and eight recommendations for immediate implementation.
The statement jointly signed by Edward Gabkwet, the air force spokesperson, and his AIB counterpart, Tunji Oketunbi, did not contain the details of the recommendations.
It, however, said the report was organised into three sections.
“The submitted report is organized into three sections namely; the information obtained in the course of the investigation; analysis of data collected in view of the Board’s Terms of Reference; and the conclusion, which covers the initial findings and immediate recommendations.
“It is expected that the final report will contain the flight data recorder readout, the reviewed operator’s and service provider’s standard operating procedures as well as other detailed analysis,” the statement read in part.
