Nigerian Army abandons Idoma-born soldier, Peter Ojabo who fell ill while fighting Boko Haram in Borno (Sad photos)
The family of LCPL Peter Ojabo has cried out to the Nigerian government to come to the aid of their son, who broke down while fighting the dreaded Boko Haram insurgents in Borno State.
The military personnel, who hailed from, Opialu-Edumoga in Okpokwu Local Government Area of Benue State, was deployed to Monguno in Borno State in 2013 to fight Boko Haram killers where he eventually fell ill and had to return home from the battlefield.
IDOMA VOICE gathered that Ojabo was diagnosed of multiple myeloma (bone marrow cancer)
He is currently at Jos University Teaching Hospital.
Amazingly, he has been responsible for his treatments all these years with a salary of NGN57,000 without any support from the military.
A statement from his Concerned Friends called on the Nigerian military welfare to come to the aid of the soldier before he dies.
According to the statement, “As it is, the sickness has become so severe that his salary can no longer take care of his hospital bills.
“His health is deteriorating steadily due to insufficient funds to get appropriate treatment. He needs your help.
“Please assist him with whatever God lays in your heart, save a brother’s life.”
