Quite surprisingly, Boko Haram was founded in 2002, who would have thought. This just goes to show the amount of work that the Nigerian army has put into battling the insurgence since its inception.
The Nigerian army is tasked with the duty of not only defending Nigeria from external aggression but also with the duty of suppressing insurrection. This means that soldiers’ lives are always in danger; more so with the burgeoning threat posed by the Boko Haram.
So far, not only have the Nigerian Army proven to be selfless, they have also succeeded in containing the advancement of the Boko Haram.
Our hearts thus go out not only to the soldiers fighting for us but also to their families for the great sacrifices of their beloved ones. A very big thank you!
