The solemn event was held at the National Arcade, opposite Eagles Square, Three Arms Zone, Abuja.

Apart from the laying of wreath, the event featured special prayer sessions for living and fallen heroes; a minute silence in honour of fallen heroes; gun salute; release of pigeons to represent peace and signing of the anniversary register among others.

Ahead of the event, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, had on Thursday released a document titled “Security checklist, as Nigeria marks Armed Forces Remembrance Day, by Presidency” in which he flaunted the present administration’s achievements in the area of security.


Adesina had said the remembrance programme offered the opportunity “to chronicle current landmark achievements by our military in tackling security challenges in the land, towards fulfilling the constitutional requirement of government guaranteeing the protection of lives and property.”
