share on:

Lt Mayowa Areago, a young Nigerian army officer  was shot dead six days ago while retreating from a mission to fight Boko Haram in Borno state. According to his friends who sent in his photos, he graduated from Nigerian Defence Academy in 2012 and was immediately posted to the North to help in the fight against Boko Haram.

“Please help us appeal to the government to give our military the right weapons to defend this nation. A lot of innocent people have died to defend you and I. I really want all Nigerians to celebrate this young, gallant, combatant Nigerian Army officer. Rest in the bossom of the Lord “Area”‘ a friend said

May his brave soul rest in peace.
