“On behalf of officers, airmen and airwomen of the Nigerian Air Force, the Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, commiserates with the family of the late former Chief of Defence Staff over this irreparable loss.

“We pray that the Almighty God grant his soul eternal rest,” the statement read.

The late Badeh, who was 61 years, was commissioned into the Nigerian Air Force in 1979.

He was born in Vimtim, in the Mubi Local Government Area of Adamawa State.
