Widows, families of late 7 Air Force officers get N7m succour
Relief has come the way of the widows and families of the seven Air Force officers who died in a plane crash on February 21, 2021 as they received N7m donation from the Victims Support Fund (VSF) Task Force on COVID-19.
The families received N1m each to assuage their pains as they continue to mourn their late breadwinners.
The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Beechcraft KingAir B350i aircraft crashed while returning to the Abuja Airport after reporting engine failure. Seven officers on board the military aircraft died near Nigeria’s capital Abuja.
Presenting the cheques, the Chairperson of the taskforce, Mrs. Toyosi Akerele-Ogunsiji said the gesture was to provide succour to the family members.
She extolled the contributions of the fallen heroes in enhancing national security.
“We know that your families are going through difficult times, but we want you to know that you are not forgotten because they remain very much dear in our hearts.”
