A Nigerian soldier/member of the Armed Forces Special Force, Francis Adigun (pictured), lost his life during the recent rescue operation of women and children from Boko Haram, leaving behind his only daughter Sonia and her mother.
Described as a loving father, wonderful friend, caring brother, great footballer and gallant soldier, a friend – Adewole Pius Adesina paid a tribute to him via Social media.
It reads, “He paid the supreme price, he gave his life for the freedom of others.
While rescued women and girls were reunited with their families, he is parted from his forever.
I sit here still finding it hard to believe you are gone.
Let us always remember freedom comes at a price and let us also remember those who paid the price.
He was a loving father, a wonderful friend, a caring brother, a great footballer and above all, a gallant soldier. Rest in Peace Francis Adigun, I will miss you, your family and friends will miss you, the Armed Forces Special Force will miss you. @seal of honour’
May His soul rest in Peace. Amen.
