A Nigerian soldier, who is finally seeing his family after going on a year mission to Maiduguri, Borno state, has lamented bitterly over his inability to pay transport fare, worth N35k.

Upon reaching the park, he was informed that the transportation cost for the return journey amounted to N35K, which he is unable to afford.

After a brief mental calculation, he discovered that the round-trip transportation cost would total N70K. 

Despite earning a monthly salary of only N50K, the soldier decided it was more feasible to return to the bush in Maiduguri due to the unaffordable transport fare.
