Nollywood actor has joined the celebrities donating money to Nigerians who do not have enough resources for the lockdown happening across the country.
Yul Edochie, however, took a step further by giving out money to the Nigerian military officers fighting terrorists in the jungle.
In this period, it is easy to forget the men fighting to keep the country going amidst this coronavirus pandemic. While little provisions are being made for poor Nigerians, no one seems to remember that there are people out there who are more at risk.
In view of this, the movie star said that he wanted to appreciate them with a token. Yul Edochie took to his page on the photo-sharing app, Instagram, to call on military men to send their bank accounts or that of their wives.
According to him, they are risking their lives being in the jungle and fighting off terrorists for the country. Describing them as real men, the filmmaker said that the money he would be sending to them is just to appreciate them for their services to the nation.
