Soldiers of the Nigerian Army
They are burdened by sub-standard leadership, sub-standard ammunition, sub-standard preparation. They are not trained for Boko Haram type warfare. They do not get many of the allowances due to them. They have a bad reputation in the eyes of the average Nigerian. And yet, they fight to protect us. They fight under truly terrible conditions. They die and we do not remember them. We do not thank them. We do not celebrate them. We should.
