Buhari hails pilot who ejected safely from jet attacked by bandits

President Muhammadu Buhari has lauded the gallant pilot of the Nigerian Air Force Alpha Jet, Flight Lieutenant Abayomi Dairo, who successfully ejected from an aircraft that came under “intense ground fire from bandits” in Zamfara State at the weekend.

The President reacted Tuesday after receiving a briefing on the successful operation by the nation’s defence forces to rescue the pilot.

In a statement issued by his media aide, Garba Shehu, Buhari said he was pained by the news of the air crash but relieved over the pilot’s successful ejection.

“I was shocked by the devastating news of the air crash but felt much relieved, following the successful ejection by the pilot and his eventual rescue. May the injured pilot recover at the earliest time.’’
