15th January of every year is Nigerian Armed Forces Remembrance Day. A day Nigerians all over the world remember the fallen heroes who paid the ultimate prize.
During the commemoration, white pigeons are released from the cage to fly. This activity is performed by the president of Nigeria and governors of different states. The white pigeons represent Peace while the act of flying out from the cage signifies freedom.
This year’s Armed Forces Remembrance Day was unusual. The pigeons in some states refused to fly when they were released.
States like Lagos, Ogun, Imo, Cross River States and FCT, Pigeons released refused to fly!
