Prince Harry, Wife To Arrive Nigeria On Friday – Military


The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has said the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry would be arriving in Abuja tomorrow to visit wounded soldiers.

Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry is respected among world militaries for launching the Invictus Games, a sport event for military personnel wounded in action, in 2014.

The game first took place in London in 2014. The word ‘Invictus’ is Latin for ‘unconquered’, chosen as an embodiment of the fighting spirit of the wounded, injured and sick service personnel and what they can achieve, post-injury.

The sport has helped to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation, and generate a wider understanding and respect for those who serve their country in the military.

The DHQ said they are honoured and delighted to host the Duke, His Royal Highness Prince Harry and his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan.

Addressing newsmen on the visit, Director of Sports, Defence Headquarters, Air Vice Marshal, Abidemi Marquis said there is a proposed Invictus game centre for wounded soldiers.

According to him, “The invictus centre will be located in Abuja. Their coming will be impactful. Prince Harry would interact with the wounded soldiers and have a meet-and-greet session with the wounded soldiers.

“The focal point of the visit is for the wounded and injured soldiers as a result of our engagement in counterterrorism operations.

Present at the briefing is the defence spokesman, Brig. General Tukur Gusau and other senior officers.

He added: “During their stay in the country, they will be meeting with Service members and will be hosted to arrays of cultural activities.”
