The authorities of the Nigerian Air Force in Port Harcourt have confirmed that a rocket flew out of the Nigerian Air Force helicopter and destroyed a building at no 98 Woji Street, Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

The Commander of the Nigerian Air Force Base, Port Harcourt, Air Vice-Marshall Abba Zannah, gave the confirmation, when he briefed journalists in Port Harcourt on Friday.

The helicopter was said to be on routine patrol of the Niger Delta creeks, and the Commander did not disclose if it had completed its mission or not when the rocket fell off.

He said the incident occurred about 6:30am on Friday, and that no life was lost. ( Continues below….. )

"It was a technical error which was unusual in the system. But we are glad that no life was lost in the incident.

"It was not a normal thing in the Air Force system and the outcome of the investigation will allow us take certain measures,'' Zannah said on Friday.

The commander said the incident should not raise fears among the residents and appealed to them to go about their normal businesses.

EjeThis act was either deliberate to put fear in the mind of the Niger Dalta people , or out of ignorant. The Congress should investigate before another Boko Haram emerged in the South.
