A lady by the name Olanireti Adegoke Babalola has narrated her emotional experience with a soldier in Lagos. According to her, the experience re-assured her that there are still few good men in the military force.

Read her post:

”I met @joshua.ishaya.90 today while stuck on Marina bridge during the women marathon and he proved that there are still a few good men in the force. Not only was he concerned about the welfare of my children, he also stayed with my car while I went with the children and their nanny to look for a cab to take them home.

I walked for almost 30 minutes down apongbon bridge and by the time I was done, cars had started moving. I ran all the way back up because I had a thousand and one “what if” running through my mind. I got to the car and @joshua.ishaya.90 was right beside my car waiting for me to come back while his mates had left with their car. He didn’t want anything from me, he said he had to keep his promise.

He had been at the fore front of the boko haram war and he showed me his war scars. He was shot, he had another scar on his head from an IED. His brother was killed when the terrorists attaced their base. I asked him why they both joined the force and he said they loved it . His dad is also a retired soldier. I really appreciate you officer and thank you for your service to Nigeria and to me. God bless you real good.”
