“Again the video also claimed that the number of people so dropped were up to 100 and a veritable fact is that an helicopter can only carry about 5 or 6 persons at a time. So how many helicopters do they see dropping up to this number the video claimed. There more questions than answers here.

Iwuchukwu said the Commandant has directed a full detailed investigation into the matter with a view to ascertaining the source of the video and also if there is any iota of truth in the whole story.
