Adding a chilling twist to the situation, a viral video allegedly filmed at the crash site features Dogo Gide and his group claiming responsibility for the accident.

The terrorists are seen wielding AK-47s in the video.

They did this to see the downfall of Dogo Gide and by God’s grace, he is still alive and won’t die.

These are dozens of soldiers as you can see them.

This is their airplane. Repent, we have no business with anyone except those who try to come for us.

This is God’s work.

We used an AK-47 to bring down this plane.”

The narrator continued, “Take a look at them. Let this be a lesson.

You all should repent.

It is not our intention to kill but for everyone to be enlightened and have the fear of God. Leaders who sent these soldiers our way to be killed by us should repent.

We won’t surrender from pressure or even an aeroplane.

Dogo Gide, who is their target, won’t die now.

He is still alive.

These are the AK-47s we used to bring down this plane.

We opened fire when we sighted them and they did the same.

Repent and fear God.

We pray for God’s mercy at all times.
