A Nigerian man, Dotun Ajayi, has taken to social media to hail a Nigerian soldier who helped him to fix his car when it developed a fault while it was raining in Ibadan, Oyo state on Tuesday, June 30.
Ajayi in his post, recounted how the soldier whose name he gave as Corporal Etuk Emmanuel, helped him in his time of need. He said soldiers like Etuk are rewriting the narrative about the Nigerian Army. Read his post below
”A worthy soldier and gentleman.
This evening on my way back from my brother’s house , my car developed a fault simply because the road is bad (Ojuirin – Olorunda road after Akobo in Ibadan) I was practically helpless because there were no mechanics in sight and it was raining heavily too. Then this angel in the form of a Nigerian soldier showed up, he asked what the problem was and offered to help. He knelt in the rain and when he couldn’t fix it, he asked me to carefully drive the car to the barracks and there he was going to fix it. I accepted his offer gladly and we ended up at the military workshop where he fixed my car within minutes.
I have heard many stories about our military men, but this is totally different and I was impressed. Men like lance Corpral Etuk Emmanuel are rewriting stories about the Nigerian Army one act of service at a time.
This is the Nigeria Army of our dreams. Please help me to appreciate this galant soldier who chose to help a civilian like me in Nigeria in the year 2020.”
