Also in attendance are special envoys, including representatives of military organisations in some countries as well as families of the nation’s fallen heroes.

The annual Armed Forces Remembrance Day celebration serves as an avenue for honouring fallen heroes who laid down their lives in service of humanity during the first and Second World War, Nigerian Civil War, peace support and various internal security operations.
