Boko Haram has claimed responsibility for the missing Jet of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF).
The radical sect made this known in a video on Friday.
The clip showed the fighters carrying artillery equipment and a corpse of one of the dead pilots.
In the seven minutes, thirty seconds footage, Boko Haram fighters were seen moving along a dusty road, in gun trucks and on motor bikes.
The video showed that the aircraft exploded in the air before it crashed.
The military is yet to react to the claim of the insurgents.
Recall that a jet deployed against the sect in Borno State evening lost contact with radar on Wednesday evening.
NAF spokesperson, Edward Gabkwet, had disclosed the identities of the pilots but said their whereabouts were unknown.
