Prince Harry Visits Wounded Soldiers in Kaduna, Nigeria

The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, extended his support to wounded soldiers in Nigeria during his visit to Governor Uba Sani of Kaduna State and the 44 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital.
Arriving at the Sir Kashim Ibrahim Government House in Kaduna, Prince Harry was warmly welcomed by Governor Sani, who applauded the prince for his solidarity with the Nigerian Armed Forces and his dedication to supporting injured soldiers.
Governor Sani emphasized the significance of Prince Harry’s visit in boosting the morale of the courageous officers and soldiers, highlighting its role in fostering recovery and rehabilitation.
Expressing his purpose for the visit, Prince Harry reiterated his commitment to leveraging the Invictus Games, which he founded a decade ago, to uplift the spirits of wounded Nigerian soldiers and their families.
In a gesture of traditional hospitality, Governor Sani presented gift items to Prince Harry and adorned him in a traditional Hausa attire, symbolizing the cultural exchange during the visit.
Subsequently, Prince Harry and his entourage proceeded to the 44 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital to engage with wounded soldiers undergoing treatment.
While journalists were restricted from accessing the hospital wards, Brigadier General Tukur Gusau, the Director of Defence Information, emphasized the positive impact of the visit on the lives of the soldiers and their families.
Nigeria is the first African country to join in the Invictus Games held in Germany last year with ten participants from the Nigerian Armed Forces.
Prince Harry’s visit to Kaduna holds historical significance, marking 68 years since his late grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, visited the state during the era of the late Premier of Northern Region, Sir Ahmadu Bello.
