Just some days in the past, I made a submit tagging my Oga Lt. Col Ibrahim Sakaba , reminiscing our days in NDA and the way I eluded him and a few of my different seniors these days in Burma Battalion, NDA.
Early this morning, I woke as much as the submit that Oga Sakaba had been murdered as the commander of his unit by Boko Haram amongst 44 soldiers killed in a gory assault! I’m nonetheless in shock!
Just some weeks in the past, I obtained the information of the killing of my aburo, Late Capt.
Sola Michael Akingbesote … who too was fallen by Boko Haram in an assault on the Nigerian Military.

Right here alone, on Fb, I may tag not lower than 10 military officers that I do know PERSONALLY and these terrorists have murdered in varied assaults.
Now, I can’t politicize points that pertain to lives particularly of folks recognized to me, and I can’t politicize points that pertain to the Nigerian Military/Armed Forces— an establishment I maintain sacrosanct regardless of not being a supporter of their C-in-C, however I pray that this menace of Boko Haram will probably be handled IN SINCERITY!
Sufficient of the authorities taking part in to the gallery— and telling Nigerians that Boko Haram has been utterly defeated… as a result of issues are GETTING WORSE!
I pray for members of our Armed Forces who toil day and evening to maintain us protected.
I pray for the members of households of these killed in these assaults.
Most significantly, I pray these mindless killings in Nigeria are all put to cease.
I pray the peace of God reigns supreme in our land.
