The Nigerian Air Force, NAF, headquarters has said that its helicopter landing site, Helipad, in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State was attacked by unknown gunmen on Sunday.

The NAF, however, disclosed that its personnel on guard duty at the facility were able to repel the attackers in a shootout.

A statement by the NAF’s Director of Public Relations, Olatokunbo Adesanya, said, “In the early hours of Sunday, 13 May 2018, a group of unknown gunmen attacked the guard post at Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Helipad at Igbodene in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.

“Although the NAF personnel on duty were able to repel the attack, an airman paid the supreme sacrifice in the process.
