“It’s hard to say goodbye my captain and hero. Death has robbed me of you. You were a loving husband, a loving father, a loving brother and a loving son.
“That’s what you are and will always be. Death is what we all will face but you left us so suddenly.

“Your son couldn’t call you daddy, my heart bleeds. You died for us to have peace in this country, you will forever remain in our hearts. We love you but God loves you more because he took you to a place where there’s no bomb blast of Boko Haram or war.
“Continue to rest in the bosom of the almighty captain A O Edekin. Miss you so much.”

This was the lamentation of the Mrs. Ehigocho B. Edekin, wife of one of the soldiers who lost their lives during an encounter with the Boko Haram sect in Adamwa recently.

Captain Edekin, 30, alongside 7 others military personnel were killed by an explosive device planted by suspected Boko Haram foots soldiers near Michika last week.
To the young widow, the demise of her husband is still like a dream.

Speaking with DAILY POST on phone, the bereaved widow described the transition of her spouse as sad and shocking, saying that it was least expected.

“My brother, such is life. God knows the best. I still can’t believe my captain is no more. It looks like I am still dreaming. So sad that he can’t wait for our two months old son to grow to call him daddy. Death has really dealt with me. It is well my brother,” an emotion-laden Mrs. Edekin told our reporter on phone, Friday evening.

He was on Friday committed to mother earth in his country home of Sobe, Owan West Local Government Area of Edo State.
