Who Says Nigerian Female Soldier Don't Have Swag, See this (pictures)

Many have believed that the military is hard and rough work, is all about you and how you choose your way of life.

I have come across a lot of people who said being a female soldier or any form of the military you will not be free to dress cool and charming.

Believe me, honestly, these have incredibly proved them wrong. I have come across a lot of female soldiers that you will die to have around you as your wife if chance permits.

In December 1983 the new régime of the Head of State of Nigeria, Major General Muhammadu Buhari, announced that Nigeria could no longer afford an activist anti-colonial role in Africa. 

Anglophone members of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) established ECOMOG, dominated by the Nigerian Army, in 1990 to intervene in the civil war in Liberia.

Smaller army forces had previously carried out UN and ECOWAS deployments in the former Yugoslavia, Angola, Rwanda, Somalia, and Sierra Leone.

The anti-colonial policy statement did not deter Nigeria under Generals Ibrahim Babangida in 1990 and Sani Abacha in 1997 from sending peacekeeping troops as part of ECOMOG under the auspices of ECOWAS into Liberia and later into Sierra Leone when civil wars broke out in those countries.

President Olusegun Obasanjo in August 2003 committed Nigerian troops once again into Liberia, at the urging of the United States, to provide an interim presence until the UN's force UNMIL arrived. 

Charles Taylor was subsequently eased out of power by U.S. pressure and exiled to Nigeria
