Lol Lobatan! Russian Government who denied through their
Nigeria’s Embassy twitter page that they had no ties with arms carrying plane
bound for Chad which was seized in Nigeria yesterday, has accepted the plane
actually belongs to them in less than 24 hours of denying it.
In a fresh round of tweets this afternoon, the Russian
Embassy tweeted that the plane is indeed a Russian one but was hired by the French
government to convey military hardware for its peacekeeping force in the
Central African Republic.
The Embassy tweeted in French but Premium Times already translated it in English. Continue below.

(Central African Republic) via Chad, allegedly owned by the French peacekeeping
mission, one of the tweets read.
“The detained in Kano Russian plane chartered by the French
