No better love than for a friend to lay down his life for the sake of his friend.
You have fought the right war. You have demonstrated unequal patriotism to your community, state, and nation at large.
You gave your all for the security of humanity and society.
You were killed in what you believed in, lived for, and swore to die for.
To the great families, loved ones, friends, colleagues, and acquaintances you all left behind, may God console them, taking solace that you have fought a good and brave fight and history will never forget you.
We will continue from where you stopped and ensure justice is done to your killers as a mark of honour to you, your family and the peace-loving Nigerian people.
You died as gallant warriors!
Continue to rest in the bosom of the Almighty God until we meet never to part ways again. Amen!!!
