"Three of her former classmates at the Air Force secondary school, Kaduna, Mr Nehemiah Adejoh, Mr Igbekele Folorunsho and Mr Festus Gbayegun drove past her on Kia Sorento SUV with Registration Number AZ 478 MKA. They are civilian who lives outside NAF Base Kaduna, but we're on their way to visit one Mrs Chioma Ugwu, wife of Squadron Leader Chukwuemeka Ugwu, who lives at Ekagbo quarters on the base". He said.

He further explained that the three ex-classmates were immediately detained, and subjected to alcohol test but no such substance was found in their systems.

He explained that the driver of vehicle did not have a valid driver’s license.
