A Yola-based journalist is said to have revealed that there were arms and ammunition on the helicopter, and that some foreigners were on board.
The crash site is reportedly close to the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) temporary camp, that is currently serving as a base for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the state.
