The son of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Lt. Col. Adeboye, who was shot on Monday by Boko Haram insurgents near Michika in Adamawa State has expressed eagerness to return to the battle front.
Adeboye, who is recuperating at a government medical facility in Yola, spoke with a former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar and the Director General of the National Orientation Agency, Mike Omeri.
Abubakar visited the injured soldier while Omeri spoke with him on the telephone.
A source in the hospital told Punch that the former vice-president, who recently mended fences with Obasanjo, was glad to find Adeboye in high spirit.
The source quoted Abubakar as having told the officer that he was impressed to see him display the type of courage his father (Obasanjo) was known for.
