The Nigerian Army’s dedication and determination to flush out remnants of Boko Haram terrorists is never in doubt.
In the line of duty, however, the gallant troops make selfless, noble and philanthropic sacrifices for the safety of Nigerians.
A bulk go unnoticed as only a handful is reported in the media.
On Saturday, the troops took this brave gesture to another level by serving freed Boko Haram captives water before taking them to safety.
The troops of 26 Task Force Brigade rescued an 80-year-old man, three women and four children from the terrorist sect after subduing them with superior fire power.
Media Coordinator of the Nigerian Army Operations Centre Col Aminu Iliyasu in a statement said, troops of 26 Task Force Brigade embarked on a Clearance Patrol to Dalu Village within the Mandara Mountains in Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno State following credible intelligence report on the presence of some of the criminal insurgents in that area.
The Nigerian Soldier is a humanitarian per Excellence.
Such selfless gesture should surely qualify for the Nobel peace prize for 2019.
