Nigerian military has done Nigeria proud at this year’s Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo (REMT), with an eye-popping parade on 7 August, that blended Nigeria’s culture with high precision military goose steps.

“While we may chastise them back home when things go wrong, they have undoubtedly done us proud here and it’s imperative we sing their praises. Well done great men of the Nigerian Military!!! You’ve made us so proud!!! It feels great to be Nigerian at this very moment”, wrote Ajibola Ajayi.
Ezinne @_ezinne also commented on an aspect of the show: “When I saw people running out into the military parade space, at first, I thought, “ha, Nigerians have come again. Allow them to go out before you start embracing them na!” Lol, then I saw that it was part of the performance. Beautiful outing in all! Proudly Nigerian”.
