Two unknown people have been said to have escaped with parachutes from the Beachcraft 350 aircraft that crashed and killed Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff, Attahiru Ibrahim, on Friday, according to the account of an eye-witness in a now-viral video circulating online.
The eyewitness, whose name is unknown, narrated in an online viral video shared by Senator Dino Melaye on his Facebook page that they saw two people jumping out of the aircraft shortly before it finally went down and killing all other passengers on board, including the Late Chief of Army Staff.
The eyewitness explained that some of them watching the military plane from the ground initially thought it was engaging in some sort of military training and manoeuvring until they saw it coming down and engulfed in flames.
He emphasized that shortly before the plane started coming down, they saw two people jumping out of the plane and later triggered their parachutes to escape into the bush where they could not be traced again.
