I Am eager To Return To Battle - Obasanjo's son


The injured son of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Lt. Col. Adeboye Obasanjo, who was wounded in a fire-fight between the military and Boko Haram terrorists in Bazza on Monday, has expressed eagerness to return to the battleground.

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 at the hospital who spoke on condition of anonymity also informed one of our correspondents that Atiku was impressed when the colonel informed him that he was eager to get back on his feet and return to his duty post.

He added that the former vice president praised the gallant spirit of Obasanjo, prompting him to comment that the trait was from his former boss.

“He was even marching before me, even as he was recovering from gunshots,” Atiku reportedly said, while wishing him speedy recovery.
