Time to speak out rather than committing suicide

I am Obi Peter, a Nigerian soldier shot  by Boko Haram terrorists in Maiduguri on January 25th 2015. I have been on admission till December 2018 when I was forced to visit my unit from Kaduna Military by the Army Hospital director to come back when an approval of fund for my further treatment is made

When I was coming back, I had a fatal auto accident but God saved me, the car summersaulted more than six times and also fell on tress and buildings on motion. Since then, I have been passing through pains and the people that forced me to travel never care to know how I am feeling till now.

Even when I contacted them severally about the incident. Before I was forced to leave the hospital pending when an aprroval of fund for my further treatment is made, some dignitaries tried to assist but all to no avail. Few names I will mention tried their best but the same people that sent me to battlefield still kept silent about it.


I can’t forget Ugwumba Uche Nwosu, Chief Ikedi Ohakim, Barrister Chijioke Onwubuariri, Maj Gen. Okeke, Hon. Franklin Ibeh, Mayor Kenneth Emejuru, Gen, Onibasa, some senior officers of the Nigerian Military, some firends here I never seen in my life and also my uncle and some of my cousins.

For your love and assistance, my people, all is not well. I am still too young, the burden is much on me. I am feeling rejected and abandoned. Friends are avoiding me now, even my own people I went to represent, no one comes close to me again. People don’t respond to my calls or reply my text messages. I don’t know my offence people. I don’t know if it is a crime to serve and defend my country.

Please come to my rescue, I’m dying. Thanks for your understanding and may the good lord continue to bring my destiny helper through you all. I have attavhed some pictures here to provemy predicaments.
