A Nigerian Air Force aircraftman has been killed by the propeller of the force helicopter in Bama, Borno State on Saturday.
PRNigeria gathered that Aircraftman Umaru Abdul Ganimu was part of the NAF team that is actively engaged in counter-insurgency operation in the North East.
Mr Ganimu was passing through the side of the functioning rotor when the blade chopped off his head.
The aircraft was recovered and taken back to the airbase without any damage on tail rotor.
He has since been buried according to the Islamic rites at the Maimalari Military Cemetery in Maiduguri after the family members were duly informed.
