Only an investigation will reveal the true reason for the crash.
“The Taraba incident was as a result of explosion. At this stage it is not known of the explosion was caused by a malicious detonation or by a safety fault. Again only an investigation will reveal what was the cause.

“It calls for an enhanced approach to national safety and security issues to avoid the wanton killing of Nigerians and to address the safety issues in the country”, he said.
