Photo: Buratai weeps as military buries fallen heroes

Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai yesterday wept as he read an emotional speech at the burial of seven soldiers killed in a Boko Haram attack at Malam Fotori, Borno state last week Friday. Giving the speech at the National burial organized for the soldiers at the National cemetery, Buratai lost control of his emotions while reading his tribute to the soldiers. Part of the tribute reads;


"Here lie the bodies of our fallen heroes; Lt. Co. Muhammad Abu Ali, Staff Sgt. Muazu Ibrahim, Sgt Husseini Jafaru, Sgt Okon Bassey, Cpl Chukwu Simon, PTE Salishu Lawal, and Able Seaman Patrick Paul. These gallant soldiers were inducted into Operation Lafiya Dole in 2014 to form the pivot of the counter insurgency efforts of the Armed Forces of Nigeria in the North East. Through fearless and dogged determination to defend the territorial integrity of our fatherland, these turned the tide of battle to liberate Nigeria from the scourge of terrorism. As members of 119 Task Force Battalion, and the Armed Forces Special Forces, they went after the adversaries to smoke them out of their enclaves, bomb their factories had hiding areas. They were brave, precise, professional and inspiring. They led the battle to recapture the following towns and villages: Monguno, Baga, New Marge, Bama, Gwoza, Banki Junction, Gamboru Ngala, Yale, Yemteke, Bitam, Doronaira, Kagarwa, Ärrege, Abadam, and Mallam Fatori. In these battles, they rescued women, and children, fathers and mothers, the young and the old and restore peace and order to Nigerian citizens. At last on 4th November 2016, they paid the supreme sacrifice in the battle of Mallam Fatori. These men epitomize the best of our military. Our brave and gallant compatriots, your families and comrades will miss you. The entire nation will miss you but be rest assured that your labour will never be in vain. Sarkin Yarkin, the frontline general, you and your men have fought a good fight, you always told them to pray, stay alert, and stay alive. You will always be alive in our memories, we shall continue to pray for you, we shall continue to pray for you all, and we shall remain alert for you, for the cause you have laid your life for. Your loved ones will remain in our care and their welfare will be of utmost priority at all times".

May our Heroes rest in Peace. I pray your families (wives and children especially) will be given the support you so deserve for the sacrifice you have made.My thoughts are with you who lost husbands and children who lost fathers. May God comfort you.
I pray your homes will not be taken from you because of this loss cos we cannot be silent over that.

Exactly wts on my mind, u can't eat ur hot tuwo and have it. The B.Haram they created to return power to the north has gain momenturn 4rm other Islamic terrorist group, now is hard control. "Evil that men do live before/after them".I can only feel for the innocent soldiers.
If dis had happen in the creek that #NepaBillHolder would have declare state of emergency to wipe his generation out. To all southern fool that conspire against the previous Adm.twabi ladim mion.

its very painful but a question what happen to others who have been killed before is it that their life does not matter. i have seen alot of sympathy on this particular one. haba we need to move sentiment apart. all soldiers are HEROS.

Very unfair, it was since 2013 this officer has been in Maiduguri. He was due for posting several times but they refuse to post him out. Now they have posted his dead body. So many of them serving more than the stipulated period of 1yr in battle camps. Please they should review their list of those that are still there for over 3yrs now. My Fiancee inclusive. Haa Oluwa see my heart oo . rest on Soldiers
