Nigeria’s Defence Minister, Bashir Magashi, has instilled a sense of bravado into soldiers who have been assigned to ward of the threats of terrorists (Boko Haram).
The minister asked the troops to be afraid of the bullet because once they are soldiers, bullets can meet them anywhere even in their own house.
Speaking on Sunday, April 18, during a morale-boosting visit to the troops in Maiduguri, Borno State, the retired Brig.-Gen. said what should be on the minds of the troops while battling insurgents should be to secure the country.
“You should not be afraid of the bullet because it can even meet you in the house if it means you dying by it. But if you are not meant to die by the bullet, it will never kill you even at the heart of a war,” he said.
