“This Christmas I urge all Nigerians to spare a thought for our military on the frontlines of the war on terror.

“I had cause to telephone Lt. Col. Ibrahim Sakaba’s widow this Yuletide. I am touched by her devotion and love for her husband who paid the supreme sacrifice for Nigeria.”

Speaking with The PUNCH on Monday, however, the widow, Seun, told our correspondent that she never received any call from the former Vice-President.
