I’m Eager To Return To Battle Field, Injured Obasanjo’s Son Says
The son of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Lt. Col. Adeboye, who was shot on Monday by Boko Haram insurgents near Michika in Adamawa State has expressed eagerness to return to the battle front.
The younger Obasanjo stated this yesterday when former vice president Atiku Abubakar paid him a visit at a government medical facility in Yola where he is receiving treatment.
Adeboye, who was reportedly in high spirits despite his injuries, is an army engineer recently deployed from Jos to join in the battle against the insurgents.
He was injured during a battle to repel the insurgents at Michika in Adamawa State.
A source in the hospital told one of our correspondents that the former vice-president, who recently mended fences with Obasanjo, was glad to find Adeboye in high spirit.
The source quoted Abubakar as having told the officer that he was impressed to see him display the type of courage his father (Obasanjo) was known for.
“He even marched before me even as he was recovering from gunshots,” the source quoted the ex-vice president as saying.
Abubakar was said to have wished Adeboye speedy recovery from the injuries he sustained from gunshots in an operation to flush out insurgents from Michika. About 25 soldiers were killed in the battle.
