Very sad news. The former Nigerian Chief of Army Staff Lt-General Salihu Ibrahim died yesterday at the age of 73. Ibrahim was a pioneer member of the first regular combatant course of the Nigerian Defence Academy (which graduated in 1967). He finished first in his intake and was awarded the Sword of Honour. The photo above shows Ibrahim (far left) in 1967 with the then Head of State Major-General Yakubu Gowon (center and front).
