While thousands of Cameroonians were marching in Yaounde to show support for the Cameroonian army’s battle against Boko Haram on Saturday, dozens of Nigerians were conducting their own solidarity march in Abuja to honour the Nigerian army and regional forces fighting Boko Haram.
Channels TV reports that the march was organized by Support Our Troops Foundation. They were motivated to hold the march due to the recent progress the army have made in the fight against the terrorists – especially reports of reclaimed territories by the troops.
The foundation expressed its hope that the march would boost the morale of the soldiers.
Nigerian Army spokesperson, Chris Olukolade, was present at the march, and he expressed his appreciation to all who participated in the march, promising that “never again will reclaimed territories fall to the insurgents.”
Here are some photos from the march:
