Nigerian Officer Died Saving Lives Of His Colleagues While Fighting Boko Haram (See Photos)

Brave Nigerian naval officer Seaman Amaseimogha Paul ensured he died alone after noticing landmine while fighting Boko Haram insurgents in Borno state.

A naval officer left Bayelsa to Borno state to a$$ist fight Boko Haram. While he stepping on a landmine he told his colleagues to stay far away from the area while he tried to discharge the explosive.

His touching story was shared by his colleague, Okunima Patrick.

Read it below:-

"You weren't the first Naval personnel to die in the battle against insurgency, but the special thing about your death is that when you stepped on a landmine, you knew death was unavoidable (considering our present level of technology, training and other factors I wouldn't want to mention), so you alerted your colleagues to steer clear as far as they could go, away from the mine, before detonating the explosive. What an act of bravery?

"All those whom you have saved will forever remain in your debt. Those of us who were not in the battle field with you also appreciate your gesture. It's only in the movies we find a soldier with your kind of heart."
At the burial colleagues and relatives of Amaseimogha betrayed emotions as they broke down in tears.


Amaseimogha, who was killed at the battlefield, was buried according to the tradition of the Nigerian Navy.
