This was made known by President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide on digital communications, Tolu Ogunlesi.

He also added that the first song played by the Nigerian contingent, titled Eddie Quansah, was on the Abiriwa album released in 1973 by the Peacocks International Guitar Band of Owerri.

The Nigerian military also performed to Me I Like My Country which was composed by Mandy Brown Ojugbana when she was 16.

The tattoo word in the procession's name is derived from the 17th century Dutch phrase which translates to “turn off the tap”. The term was always used to signal the military to switch off their light and retire to their camp beds at night. The first REMT was organised in 1969 with the term Something About a Soldier.
