President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the national flag to be flown at half-mast in honour of Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru, the late Chief of Army Staff and 10 others who died in an air crash on Friday.

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, said this in a statement on Sunday.
