After Attahiru’s Death, Nigerian Army Fixes New Date for POP of 80 Regular Recruits
Passing-Out-Parade is one of the series of activities lined up to mark the end of the rigorous training involved in the process of making of a soldier. It is the climax of Recruits intensive training in Depot Nigerian Army. The ceremony showcases the height of military discipline and regimentation.
This event was earlier slated for Saturday 22 May 2021 with the Late Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Lieutenant General Ibrahim Attahiru as the Reviewing Officer/Special Guest of Honour. However, the event could not hold due to the ill-fated plane crash that cut short the lives of the COAS and ten (10) others on the evening of Friday 21 May 2021.
In view of the above, Depot Nigerian Army wishes to inform the general public that the Passing out Parade is now rescheduled as follows:
