Armed Forces Work is a national work that takes your private life out of you'd parents hands.

The ratio of men to women in Armed Forces is very high. Meaning women are very few in the service.



Below is a touching Story of a Nigerian soldier Who signed against her parents wish but eventually lost her life fighting Boko Haram in Borno State.

Tribute to Toyin Ogunleye


There were dimples on her cheek, she has disarming voice. Even in combative kits, she evoke random tributes of cheer. In the heat of the attack, her disarming smile never disappeared.

She was abducted by Boko Haram in a whirlpool of blood. The female combatant was decapitated by her abductors in a sadistic manner.

When her neck was fed to the sword, she would probably thought of home, she would probably remember her life in time of peace. She would probably recalled the things she would never do again, the people she would not see including her love and the heartfelt dreams she would never realise.

At death doors, nobody knew her final state, nobody knew the feelings that ran through her mind.

But in the Barrack, she's remembered as a gallant officer, she died serving the country. Like her private colleague says, she rises every day, eager to face any eventuality. She's ready to grapple with any threat, even death.

She said, if death comes today, it's comes. I am ready to face it. It's what I signed on for. I signed on to defend the country and protect every Nigerian with my life, so if I die, I die!

In spirit of resoluteness, she said I am the first soldier in my family. My parents kicked against my decision to join the Army. They never wanted me to join. But I was adamant. I told them my mind was made up to pursue a career in the military and they later accepted my decision and they supported me.

But moment she was posted to Borno, her mother lost hope. She was very scared. When I called my parents to tell them that I had been posted to Borno, my mother became very scared. She told me to quit the military. She begged me to resign and come home. She was very scared because of the News of random bombings and attacks she hears, but I told her to let me be.

I told her that I am a trained combatant, a gallant soldier. I told her that I signed on to protect her life and millions of that Nigerians. Who will do the job if every daughter and son are persuaded to shun the military because they might die? We will all die eventually. So, if I die protecting my country, so be it.

Always pray for Nigeria solders especially those in the war front.
