They went, stake and battled

To extinguish the blaze from war

For peace and unity not to burn

Alive or fallen, heroes they are.


15th January, the day we sober, reflect and celebrate

Their pain, anguish and courage.

They were soldiers, proud country men, sons and fathers

In the Nigerian Armed Forces.


Forever, they will dwell in our hearts

For they fought with their hearts.
