How Terrorism Sponsors Killed Former Chief of Army Staff Through Plane Crash—According to Retired General

In an exclusive interview with THISDAY, Ali-Keffi argues that the crash has a close connection to those who finance terrorism and calls on Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu to look into the situation right away.

Expressing reservations about the official investigation, Ali-Keffi alleges a deliberate suppression of critical details surrounding the crash, emphasising that the full report has not been disclosed to the public.

The former general claims that Attahiru played a crucial role in developing plans to destroy terrorism in Northern Nigeria, going so far as to reveal and neutralise those who finance terrorism.

Ali-Keffi challenges the sudden adjustments to the itinerary, the change in aircraft selection, and the variation to the landing airport.

He challenges the official story by citing a string of odd occurrences that included the aircraft’s descent during bad weather, a delayed departure, and an ear-shattering explosion prior to the crash.

Ali-Keffi describes the sequence of events that culminated in the crash and raises concerns about the reasons for the last-minute alteration to the itinerary, the demand that Attahiru physically attend a meeting, and the flight’s delayed departure.

In an attempt to connect the tragedy to weather reports of severe storms and heavy rain in Kaduna airspace, he also cites these reports.

“I spoke on the phone with the Chief of Staff (COS) to the late COAS regarding their upcoming trip to Kaduna the following day (May 21, 2021) at approximately 2100 hours on Thursday, May 20, 2021,” Ali-Keffi said.

On the same matter, I had already spoken with General Attahiru. We concluded our talk with the announcement that the entourage and late COAS will arrive by plane the next day at roughly 1000 hours.

I needed to make arrangements for the mosque so that the COAS would attend Jummu’at (Friday) prayers, so I phoned the COS to the late COAS early the next morning to make sure their travel schedule was as we had planned the previous evening.

“I was notified by the COS that the plan had changed. He said that following our conversation last night, they got a message that the late COAS was expected to attend a meeting on Friday, May 21, 2021, at approximately 1000 hours, either at the Presidential Villa or at the office of the Honourable Minister of Defence (HMOD). The late COAS was expected to attend in person and was not permitted to send a representative. CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
