As part of its activities to mark Nigeria’s 58th Independence Day celebration, the House On The Rock Church, Abuja, has honoured fallen heroes who sacrificed their lives to ensure the sovereignty of the nation.

Among those honoured included the deceased armed forces who died in the course of defending the country as well as the families they left behind.

The pastor of the church, Uche Aigbe told LEADERSHIP during the ‘Refuge Heroes Awards’ that among those honoured were the  seven police men who were killed by unknown attackers while on duty at Galadimawa Roundabout in June, 2018.

According to him, “We did seven for the Police, two for the Navy and two for the Army. In all, it is between, 30-50 for each of them. They got some kind of cash assistance as well as contribution from the church.”

In his response, the Chief of Defense Staff, General Abayomi Gabriel Olonisakin commended the church for identifying with the military and honouring them.

Represented by Major General Habilla Vintanaba, Olonisakin charged other churches to emulate the act so that peace would be enforced. “This initiative will galvanize and encourage members of Nigerian military to work relentlessly.”
