‘Our grief: Capt Jonathan Polit (1973-2018)
All of the occasions I’ve visited Jos prior to now have been on events of pleasure and celebration. If not a marriage, then my spouse and I merely went for ‘yawo’ or ‘flenjor’ or we went to ‘jollof’.
However yesterday, we entered Jos with tears. My spouse is a naturally happpy particular person (her exuberant happiness even generally irritates me cos I might be like ‘why is that this one simply happying upandan’) and seeing her in tears merely tore me up. I wept from grief and wept due to every part.
We misplaced Capt. Jonathan Polit, gallant infantry officer of the Nigeria Military, conflict veteran, terror of terrorists. And my spouse’s elder brother. He died in a motor accident near his residence in Jos.
I can’t describe how we felt when the information got here on Thursday. Shock is an understatement. Disbelief doesn’t describe it. Grief is a light phrase. We have been completely devastated.
Capt Jonathan Polit (everybody referred to as him Jona) served as a peacekeeper in Sudan and on return, was drafted to the theatre of conflict within the North East. For 3 years he served Nigeria preventing Boko Haram, was wounded, recovered and returned to the battlefront. He was a type of crack infantry models who retook Baga and Konduga from Boko Haram in very heavy preventing within the 6wks of election postponement in 2015.
He was later rotated out of Lafiya Dole to the Nigeria Military Faculty of Infantry, Jaji the place he served until his demise.
When he was wounded round 2016 or so and got here to Abuja with a POP solid on his leg, he visited usually and we gisted extensively. I noticed some video clips and footage of the battlefield and received actual firsthand data on circumstances there, data which after all I can’t set free however which helped form my mindset in regards to the gallantry of the preventing males of the Nigeria Military. These guys are heroes, I let you know. You probably have an concept what they face…
Now now we have misplaced a hero however God is aware of greatest. My father-in-law, a retired conflict veteran himself who served a few years in ECOMOG in Liberia and Sierra Leone, appears strong in his conviction that God gave him Jona and God has taken him. He has even been consolatory in direction of us youthful ones who’ve been weeping uncontrollably.
It’s actually unhappy however I thank God sure prophecy got here just a few weeks earlier than his demise which served to place him on the righteous path. I thank God that although demise thought it struck us a blow, we’re consoled that Jona is with God.
Relaxation in peace, bros! Relaxation in good peace. We’ll meet yonder at God’s toes. Goodnight!
