Three Military Officers Slump During Democracy Day Parade At Eagle Square, Abuja
Three military officers who were participating in the Democracy Day Parade, on Monday, slumped at the Eagle Square, Abuja.
Having stood for hours on one spot under the scorching sun, they were believed to have succumbed to exhaustion.
Our correspondent who was at the scene observed a bit of confusion as some security and medical personnel rushed to the parade ground with stretchers and whisked the collapsed colleagues to the medical shed on the left side of the State Box where President, Muhammadu Buhari, was seated.
However, no casualties were recorded as they were successfully treated and soon regained consciousness.
The ceremony featured performances by the Army, Navy, Air Force, and the Police.
The Nigerian Army Female Corps also performed a combat display followed by traditional dance performances from various ethnic groups.
The President, who was the Special Guest of Honour, inspected the guards and was followed by a military/police march past in a slow and quick time.
