President Muhmmadu Buhari has hailed the sacrifices of the late Chief of Army Staff, Ibrahim Attahiru, and the other military personnel that lost their lives on Friday in a plane crash at the Kaduna International Airport.

Buhari said this in a telephone conversation late on Sunday with Fati Attahiru, the wife of the late Chief of Army Staff.

Describing Attahiru as an outstanding soldier and an institution builder, who fought valiantly for Nigeria until he breathed his last, Buhari promised that the country will never forget the supreme sacrifice of the military personnel.

The President had earlier declared Monday (today) public holiday for personnel of the Nigeria Armed Forces in honour of the late Attahiru and others that died in the crash.
