  • I’m pained over the loss of lives amongst Nigerian military. Gallant soldiers paid the supreme sacrifice for their fatherland. I pray for the repose of their souls. Nigeria will never forget you. I pray that God will protect and provide for the families left behind. I have no doubt that Boko Haram will be wiped out from existence soon. Kudos to Nigerian military! You have won back your pride.
