Some of the Nigeria soldiers wounded during various encounters with the Boko Haram insurgents in the North East have vowed to return to the battlefield until the insurgents are defeated.
The soldiers made the pledge when Senetor Ali Ndume Chairman Senate Committee on Army, paid a fact-finding visit to the 7 Division Medical Services and Hospital in Maiduguri.
Coperel. Abubakar Bukar, who received bullet wounds during an insurgents ambush on troops at Damboa Road in December 2020, said he is ready to return to the battlefield to join his colleagues to continue the fight.
In his remarks, Ndume said that the visit is part of efforts to encourage the army personnel who were wounded while fighting in various theatres of operation in the North East.
He said that the decision also followed recent publications by some news media alleging that wounded troops were neglected.
Ndume said such news can demoralise the troops who are sacrificing their lives to save the country.
