Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that another Nigerian soldier celebrated his birthday in a very humble way that shows that all that matters is life and not the pomp and fare.
In a post on Thursday, January 21, Eneh asked Nigerians to say a prayer for him. He added that all his life he has never had the chance to cut a cake on his birthday.
He added that despite the fact that he would love to have one now, he still cannot afford it. To show that he is very happy to see another new year, the hardworking soldiers said that cake and bread are made from the same flour.
