A soldier with the Nigerian Army, Emmy Benison, has narrated a pathetic story of the manner in which his friend died while they were in a battle with Boko Haram terrorists.

Emmy said his friend had run out of ammo, prompting him to hand over his own spare but little did he know he was going to turn the gun on himself afterward.

He further explained how he has not been able to live happily, thinking about the fact that he gave his friend the bullet with which he used in killing himself.

That aside, his wife has also constantly blamed him for her husband’s death – a burden he has been finding hard to live with.

See his touching narration below.

This is not just a story of what happened, i just wana clear the air, we have known each other since training days bt after 4yrs we met again at the frontline.

I always reserve one ammo for myself if incase things get out of hand, I will rather pull the trigger to my head than get caught alive by Boko Haram and I always tell him about it. On that day things went out of hand and my friend was shot twice but still breathing aad was eager to keep fighting but he was out of ammo and i had an extra magazine so i gave it to him but instead he shot himself and i swear to God almighty, I never saw that coming.

News got to his newly wedded wife and kid about his death and some agent of darkness said i told him to kill himself in order to end his pain. How can i be having such conversation while engaging? Till this very day, she blames me for his death, she blames for the pains and suffering her kid and her are going through.

I posted about her on my page hoping to raise money for her to start up something because deep down i feel guilty but i only got 34k. I don’t know what to do, how can she ever forgive me? God almighty know what happened that very day, he was my buddy and i would have carried him and ran if that was an option then but we were under heavy fire. I did not meant for tinx to go dat way
