A Nigerian soldier has been reported dead just two days after he was declared missing in action. The soldier identified as captain O. J. Sola Michael Akingbesote, went missing one Friday, causing panic among colleagues, family and friends. However, he was found dead two days later on Sunday.
The death of Captain Akingbesote was reported by his close friend, Alfred Thomas, who lamented bitterly on Facebook.
According to Alfred Thomas, he still feels like he is dreaming and can hardly believe what has happened.
“My Brother Late captain O.J Sola Michael Akingbesote,when I heard u missed in Action last Friday and your body was found on sunday, I never believed.
