It was confirmed by Britain’s Ministry of Defence that a spy plane that was sent in search of the location of the kidnapped school girls has broken down.
According to the MoD statement, “A technical fault which has delayed the Sentinel aircraft on its way to Ghana is being investigated and will be solved as soon as possible.”
It added that, “In the meantime the UK military team continues its work on the ground while other surveillance aircraft continue the search for the missing schoolgirls.”
Apparently, the Royal Air Force jet had taken off from Waddington base in east England as planned, but the crew soon noticed a fault. They decided to fly on and eventually touched down in Senegal, where the plane is now being repaired, according to the Times.
