"Definitely, I will come back because Nigeria is always my home. Like the threat of insecurity and what is actually going on there, it is not wise to actually stay there. So I will like to come back to Nigeria.
Your home is still your home because as a foreigner, when things happen and war comes out, definitely they will care for the Ukrainians first before they care for foreigners. Definitely, it is not wise in my own counsel to remain in Ukraine while the war is threatening. It's better I come back to my home where I'm safer."
The man, therefore, rejected the idea of taking up arms to fight in exchange for Ukrainian citizenship.
