The issue of security is one thing many Nigerians have continues to fret over in the country. As it seems, these Nigerians are beginning to lose hope as days go by. They have continued to demand that the federal government provide adequate security of lives and properties for its citizens.

Although this has been the case, the Nigerian government has however promised to do more in the area of security. They have promised that the issue of banditry, the insurgency will become a thing of the past soon.

If you remember, a particular fighter jet belonging to the Nigerian Air Force went missing several days ago. Days after it went missing, men of the Nigerian Air Force has continued to search for the missing jet to no avail.

Some hours ago, the Boko Haram sect released a video showing a fighter jet shot and destroyed on air. As is observed from the video they posted, the said jet was shot from a far distance as it crash-landed on the ground.

Hours after Boko Haram released this video, the Nigerian Air Force has reacted to it. In a public statement issued by NAF, the claim by the Boko Haram insurgents is false. NAF maintained that this is one of the media propaganda used by Boko Haram to gain cheap attention from the public. They however promised to come up with facts concerning the incident soon.
