Nigeria celebrates Armed Forces Remembrance Day



Nigeria is today celebrating the annual Armed Forces Remembrance Day.

January 15 every year is set aside for the nation to remember her fallen heroes, particularly Nigerian soldiers who died during the nation’s civil war, and while participating in peacekeeping operations all over the world.

It is also used to gather support for those who have become incapacitated as a result of such wars as well as for families of the dead.
