FAREWELL TO OUR HEROIC CHIEF OF ARMY STAFF, GENERAL ATTAHIRU!
Death struck as their plane went down, today we mourn a true hero General brahim Attahiru. Eight other patriots were killed in the ill fated flight Beechcraft King Air 350 along with him yesterday, 21st May 2021 on an official mission to Kaduna.
The late General and the other officers who died with him in the line of duty are the latest in the list of martyrs that our dear land has recorded in the fight against terrorism and banditry.
Attahiru was amongst the club of well educated officers committed to rebuilding the Army, feared so much by the enemy. Born August 10 1966 in Doka Kaduna North, he commenced Cadet training in 1984 and was commissioned 2nd lieutenant in 1986.He obtained two masters degrees, one at home one abroad.
He attended many Military trainings and held many command positions with distinction before becoming the Chief of Army Staff
A big Iroko has fallen, my condolence goes to General Attahiru’s family, his primary constituency-Nigeria’s Army, as well as the families of the eight others.
I commiserate too with President Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR) and the entire citizens of Nigeria on this great loss. The greatest honour we can do to General Attahiru and his late colleagues is for those of us living to increase our commitment to keep Nigeria ONE and Peaceful.
God bless Nigeria!
