- This military maverick, found himself utterly perplexed, unable to grasp the enigma of why, in the aftermath of his passing, Mohbad’s name has become a blazing comet streaking through the skies of Nigeria and far-flung realms, while his fallen comrades remain in the shadows, their valor unheralded and their sacrifice unsung.
In the aftermath of the heart-wrenching loss of Mohbad, a Nigerian soldier has passionately aired his grievances, likening the way Nigerians exalt departed celebrities to a grand spectacle, while neglecting the unsung heroes, his military brethren, who have valiantly given their all on the battlefront to shield the nation from harm’s way.
